Ergis develops customizable high-performance QD barrier films

Last year, Poland-based Ergis Group launched an OLED encapsulation film platform called Ergis noDiffusion®. The company is currently testing its film solutions at customer sites in Asia, the EU and the US, and it is now starting to offer the same platform for the protection of quantum dot films (QD films) used in display and lighting applications.

These new films can be tuned to fit specific needs. Ergis can deploy its films on several substrate types, with varying film thickness, and the barrier properties can be tuned to be between 10-6 to 10-3. This means that custom films can be created to suit the specific sensitivity of the QDs for water vapor and to achieve specific product lifetime or other required properties.

Korean researchers demonstrate a highly flexible ultrathin QLED device

Researchers from Seoul National University developed an ultrathin QLED device, that can be folded just like a paper. The researchers demonstrated a 3D foldable QLED, which can be produced in customized 3D structures.

To produce the device, the researchers developed a new fabrication process, that can partially etch the epoxy film deposited on the QLED surface without damaging the underlying QLED. This changes the QLED film from a planar shape to the 3D foldable shape.
