A new guide to promising perovskite materials: The Perovskite Handbook

The OLED-Info team takes pleasure in recommending our new book - The Perovskite Handbook, which gives a comprehensive introduction to perovskite materials, applications and industry. We believe that any display professional would find that perovskite materials are an area of focus that should not be ignored.

The Perovskite Handbook

Perovskites offer a myriad of exciting properties and has great potential for the display industry. The promising perovskite industry is currently at a tipping point and on the verge of mass adoption and commercialization and the first display-related perovskites are already reaching the market.

The importance of OLED display performance and quality

Recently several display producers in Korea and China started to produce mobile flexible OLED display, aiming to compete with Samsung Display for the high-end part of the smartphone display market.

Some of these new displays suffer from display quality issues - whether from the display itself (as was the case in the first LGD pOLEDs used in the Google Pixel 2 devices) and some from the assembly contacts (which seems to be the case in the Huawei Mate 20 Pro).

OLED Microdisplays now available on the OLED Marketplace

We're happy to announce that The OLED Marketplace is now listing OLED Microdisplays, in addition to the current wide offering of PMOLED and AMOLED displays.

OLED Microdisplays are tiny (usually less than one inch in diameter) displays used in near-eye applications - such as VR/AR, industrial and military applications and more. The OLED microdisplay market is seeing increased interest at these microdisplays can enable much smaller and more efficient VR systems, compared to the current HMDs which use smartphone-sized OLED displays.

Where are the transparent OLEDs?

Transparent displays are of great interest, and many envision a plethora of possible applications that use transparent screens in the retail, commercial and consumer markets. There are many exciting applications - but none with real and immediate demand.

Many OLED makers are developing transparent OLEDs, and in the past we've seen several producers that introduced such displays to the market - only to halt production a few months later. Device makers are on the lookout for such displays, and are still disappointed even though the technology is ready.

Who will win the foldable smartphone race?

In 2013, Samsung announced its YOUM flexible OLED brand, showing off several flexible OLED prototypes - including a foldable phone/tablet. Samsung never used the YOUM brand name again, but the foldable smartphone concept presented in 2013 (see image below) is still exciting consumers - and many of them are still waiting for Samsung to commercialize the technology.

Fast forward to 2015, and the first reports of Samsung's Project Valley started to surface. Samsung started to actually develop a foldable phone, with plans to release its first device in 2016. Samsung faced many challenges - and delays - in its foldable smartphone project (which was recently renamed to Project Winner) - including problems with the substrate and the software and user interface.
