Samsung Display shows its latest QD-OLED displays at Display Week 2023

Samsung Display demonstrated its latest QD-OLED displays, in TV format (77-inch) and also in monitor formats. SDC's QD-OLED panel display won the SID Display of the Year award, and is indeed an impressive display. The company's latest QD-OLED panels offer new OLED materials, new optimized algorithms, and a maximum brightness of over 2,000 nits.

Besides the 77-inch TV, Samsung also showed 34-inch QD-OLED monitors, and 49-inch QD-OLED monitors with a ultra-wide aspect ratio (32:9).

Samsung developed an all-printed 12.4" 182 PPI EL-QD display

Researchers from Samsung Display, led by Changhee Lee, developed an all-inkjet-printed 12.4" full color 182 PPI EL-QD display, that offers improved performance.

The researchers say that by controlling carrier transport properties and charge balance through ligand exchange in QDs and ZnMgO surface, they were able to create this display that has a potential for low cost and material-consumption-efficient display manufacturing. The researchers will disclose the paper at SID Displayweek 2023 next week.

Researchers find that low-temperature processed PTAA HTL improves the performance of flexible QDEL devices

Researchers from Kyung Hee University and the Korean Institute of Science and Technology have demonstrated that a low-temperature processed PTAA hole transport layer (HTL) can improve the performance of flexible light emitting quantum dots (QD-EL, or QLEDs) - produced on plastic substrate.

The researchers say that using a low-temperature process ensures that the flexible substrate is not deformed. Such QLED devices suffer from low performance compared to glass based devices that use optimal PTAA HTLs, but the new process and materials improve the flexible devices closer to glass based ones.
