Fukuoka, Japan, October 17, 2019 – Kyulux Inc., a world leader in the development of the next generation of organic light emitting diode (OLED) HyperfluorescenceTM/TADF technology, announced that WiseChip launches world’s first commercial HyperfluorescenceTM OLED display – based on
materials by Kyulux.
WiseChip Semiconductor, Taiwan-based PMOLED display solutions provider, launched a novel HyperfluorescenceTM OLED product – a 2.7″ yellow PMOLED display that uses 4th generation HyperfluorescenceTM OLED light emission technology by Kyulux. This will be the first product using the new generation of organic compounds in a commercial display.
Kyulux, supplier of HyperfluorescenceTM/TADF materials, has been collaborating with WiseChip since 2016. Kyulux's fourth-generation HyperfluorescenceTM OLED light-emitting technology is attracting attention as the ultimate light-emitting technology that realizes long-lifetime, high-color purity and high-efficiency with excellent cost performance.
By adopting this HyperfluorescenceTM technology, WiseChip managed to create an OLED display with a simple yet highly promising structure. For instance, the 2.7-inch, 128×64 pixel array, yellow type HyperfluorescenceTM OLED can reach up to 220 nits – 2.5 times brighter than using general fluorescence materials. Tuning material parameters can lead to even higher performances. Moreover, using this material also improved the lifetime of the
product to more than 50,000 hours.
WiseChip is already looking into mass production of these HyperfluorescenceTM OLED displays.
Kyulux is a leader in developing and delivering the next generation of organic light emitting diode (OLED) technology, TADF. Kyulux develops and sells TADF and HyperfluorescenceTM based OLED materials and solutions to manufacturers in the display and lighting industries.
Founded in 2015, the Company currently owns or has exclusive, co-exclusive or sole license rights to a large TADF intellectual property portfolio developed over the past seven years at Kyushu University and its industrial partners. Kyulux also enjoys an exclusive license to cutting-edge deep learning–based artificial intelligence technology for chemical discovery developed at Harvard University.
Kyulux is based in Fukuoka, Japan, with an advanced research and development center in Boston, Massachusetts. For further information please visit: https://www.kyulux.com
Almost a decade has passed since the first demonstration of thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) in an OLED at Kyushu University in 2009, and these past ten years have seen rapid and remarkable advances in this scientific field.
To mark the 10-year anniversary of TADF, we are delighted to announce the organization of the 4th International TADF Workshop in Fukuoka, in collaboration with Opera and i3-Opera, to share the latest advances and future direction of TADF science and technologies. The workshop will cover a diverse range of topics in the areas of TADF and excitonic materials, physics, and devices.
Kyulux, Inc., a global leader of TADF and Hyperfluorescence™ developer, has been engaged in a joint development focusing on blue TADF and Hyperfluorescence™ with LG Display Co., Ltd., from January, 2018.
In addition to LG Display, Kyulux has now executed a Joint Development Agreement (JDA) focusing on Deep Blue with Samsung Display Corporation. Both of two giant display panel makers in OLED, LG Display and Samsung Display have now selected Kyulux as a blue TADF and Hyperfluorescence™ joint development partner.
Kyulux demonstrated a white OLED display that uses an orange TADF emitter combined with a blue fluorescence emitter. The novel display was developed in collaboration with the Fukuoka i3 center for Organic Photonics and Electronics Research (i3-OPERA) for demonstration at the 3rd International TADF Workshop in late July.
The display was designed by i3-OPERA and Kyulux provided the orange TADF emitter. This demonstration successfully showed the commercial viability of a TADF-based white OLED display. Kyulux and the i3-OPERA will continue the collaboration to enhance the performance and the lifetime of this display. The next step in this project is use only TADF emitters including a blue TADF emitter.
Last week at the SID DisplayWeek in Los Angeles, CA, Kyulux demonstrated Wisechip’s latest flexible PMOLED display – that uses Kyulux’s Hyperfluorescence yellow emitter. The power consumption of this display, compared to Wisechip’s fluorescent yellow, is almost half!
The Wisechip flexible display is 42.22 mm x 10.54 mm in size (1.71″ diagonal), with a resolution of 256×64 pixels. This display is now ready to be produced and Wisechip believes it will enter mass production before the end of 2018. If so this will be the world’s first HF (TADF) powered device!
