The Advancement of Hyperfluorescence™ in the Market
Since its establishment in 2015, Kyulux has realized technological innovations required for OLED materials development and succeeded in launching the first ever Hyperfluorescence™ product to the market a year ago.
Currently, multiple customers are conducting evaluation tests of Kyulux’s materials. In 2021, with the completion of these tests, Kyulux anticipates the official adoption of its materials into these customers’ product lines.
Therefore, Kyulux will continue the pertinent development tasks in line with customer needs and will extend dialogue with business partners regarding the execution of mass production.
In these days, following the covid-19 pandemic, the demand for display products and OLED panels seems to have rapidly increased and has become more diverse than ever. In order to accommodate these new demands and requirements, Kyulux will initiate full utilization of Kyumatic, the AI-Materials Informatics system licensed from Harvard University and the database of Kyulux, while taking into consideration any feedback from our customers.
In the foreseeable future, Kyulux is confident that there will be many HF™ enabled products on the market that will make remarkable contributions to the quality of daily life and improvement of task efficiency.
As a company, Kyulux is committed to taking active measures and putting in the required efforts needed to make this vision a reality.
Since the latter half of the 2000s, Kyushu University’s OPERA has believed in the great potential of TADF and has been vigorously engaged in budding basic research. In 2012, Nature magazine published an article which describes the realization of an OLED TADF device with 100% internal quantum efficiency.
In 2015, Kyulux was established in order to put this technology to practical use. In order to make TADF a feasible reality, it is essential to improve not only luminous efficiency but also element durability. Kyulux started shipping commercial TADF/HF materials in 2019, and the company is aiming for increased adoption and mass production in 2022.
Kyushu University’s OPERA center supports Kyulux’s R&D efforts with core science undertakings, advanced high-speed spectroscopic analysis and theoretical modeling of TADF molecular systems and element deterioration mechanisms.
I strongly hope that the research work will lead to improved performance of practical devices, and that the full-scale commercialization of TADF will open up new possibilities for organic molecules and advanced organic optoelectronics from both academic and industrial perspectives.
