Kyulux chosen for NEDO's R&D startup support project for early commercialization of blue Hyperfluorescence™ products

Kyulux’s next-generation OLED technology is expected to support sustainability and reduce power consumption of consumer electronics devices

Fukuoka, Japan, February 14, 2023 – Kyulux Inc., a world leader in the development of the next generation of OLEDs, Hyperfluorescence™/TADF technology, President: Nobuyuki Nakano, was selected to participate in the 2022 research and development startup support project by the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO).

The program aims to promote R&D and social implementation of energy-saving technologies for the realization of a decarbonized society. Kyulux’s project, “Development of high-efficiency, high-color-purity Hyperfluorescence™ OLED materials using innovative high-durability technology”, was selected for the program and will be granted a subsidy with an upper limit of 425 million yen for technology development costs (expected development cost is up to 850 million yen).

President Nakano commented, “As the world’s only Hyperfluorescence™ (HF) patent holder, we are leading the technological development of the industry, and with the cooperation of our partners, we have reached the stage just before commercialization. Through two NEDO projects so far, we have accumulated know-how in synthesis, analysis, and device development, but we were able to receive our largest subsidy ever at the perfect timing to challenge the last mile for commercialization. I would like to express my deepest gratitude to everyone involved in the NEDO project”.

Takahito Oyamada, Chief Technology Officer, said, “In this NEDO project, we will accelerate the construction of an atomic-level degradation analysis and a further advanced simulation model to create a blue HF material with dramatically improved durability. We are confident that we will be able to demonstrate the practical application of this new blue HF material with the latest device fabrication equipment. We are working on AMOLED (Active-Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode) for green and red HF products. We are committed to achieving the adoption of HF by 2023, and to achieve the mass production of the world’s first blue HF products by 2025.”  

[About NEDO projects]
The purpose of this project is to develop innovative energy-saving technologies and to support efforts toward social implementation, to realize a decarbonized society and strengthen industrial competitiveness in Japan. This is seamlessly supporting the development of energy-saving technologies that are expected to have a high energy-saving effect, right up to commercialization.
