2020 Agenda | OLEDs World Summit Online

Agenda schedule will take place in Eastern Daylight Time (UTC-4)

Day 1 | September 30

Session I: Market

This session will identify current challenges facing the OLED market and address the impact of COVID-19 while providing an overview of the current OLED market and forecast for the future.

  1. Keynote | OLED Competitions: Korea vs. China, Technology vs. Application, Flexible vs. Foldable

    David Hsieh | Senior Director, Displays of Omdia

    The OLED industry is now evolving from the development stage to the competitions stage. The competitions are representing in multiple aspects: Korea OLED guru vs. China OLED new kids on the block, the new technology readiness vs. the real application, the display makers vs. the brand/OEM, the flexible form factor vs. the new foldable or even stretchable form factor, and lastly, the competitions between the OLED price and OLED value proposition. Competitions indicate the evolution, which means - It is not the strongest of the technologies or capacity that survives, but the most adaptable.

  2. The World of QD-OLEDs, EL-QDs and MicroLEDs: Technology and Market Outlook

    Sid Harikrishna-Mohan | Director of Display Research of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC)

    Quantum Dots and OLEDs have been competing in the premium display segment since their emergence and the battle for supremacy has been never-ending. The game begins to change with the expected arrival of QD-OLED displays where the technologies co-exist to deliver the best of QDs and OLEDs. Beyond QD-OLEDs, next generation display technologies such as Electroluminescent QDs (EL-QDs) and MicroLEDs aim to disrupt the premium display space despite their current technological and manufacturing challenges. In this talk, we analyze both the technology and market outlook for the three display technologies: QD-OLEDs, EL-QDs and MicroLEDs.

  3. The Race to Commercialization

    Dr. Ruiqing Ma | Senior Director of R&D Devices of Nanosys Inc.

    Commercialization of Quantum Dot Electroluminescent (QDEL) displays may happen sooner than you think. Device efficiencies already approach or meet commercial requirements and lifetimes are improving rapidly. In this presentation, Dr. Ray Ma, Nanosys Director of Device Development, reports on recent breakthroughs in the development of QDEL displays including Heavy Metal Free and hybrid QD-OLED approaches.

Session II: Innovation in OLED Products

OLEDs are most commonly used in display applications such as smartphones and TVs. This session will feature presentations on current work of panel makers and provide an update on design challenges and progress.

  1. Advances in the Development of Flexible AMOLED Displays

    Ze Yuan, Ph.D. | R&D director of Advanced Technology Development of Royole Corporation

    Flexible AMOLED technology is setting the stage for end-product innovations to come, exemplified by the great attention it has gained in the consumer market over the past year. In this work, the authors describe selective topics in the development of flexible AMOLED display modules, which will further enhance the overall performance and reliability of the display.

  2. Phosphorescent OLEDs for Next Generation Products

    Dr. Mike Hack | VP of Business Development of Universal Display Corporation

    Detailed Abstract Coming Soon!

Day 2 | October 1

Deeper Dive into OLED Applications

The second day of this year's online conference will include in-depth thought leadership discussions, Q&A sessions led by our expert advisory board members, and additional presentations related to emerging OLED applications and innovations in OLED products.

  1. Thought Leaderhip | Industry Q&A

    Discussion topics and featured moderators to be announced

  2. OLED Microdisplays for AR/VR Applications

    Amal Gosh | COO of eMagin

    Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) are becoming increasing important in the market in general and are a key component of the AR/VR headsets. There are various technologies that are currently being used in these applications including OLED-on-silicon microdisplays. This presentation will first summarize the key requirements for microdisplay for AR/VR followed by the state-of-the-art status of OLED microdisplays.

  3. LED vs OLEDs

Day 3 | October 2

Session III: OLED Solutions and Manufacturing

This session will feature presentations on innovations and trends effecting the efficiency and overall progress of the OLED from methods of manufacturing to materials. 

  1. TADF-Based Green Emitters: High-performance solution for next-generation OLEDs

    Adam Kablanian | CEO of CYNORA

    CYNORA will discuss its new TADF-based green emitters. The product heightens the color purity of the green pixel when compared to state-of-the-art phosphorescent-based green emitters, while enabling a color gamut beyond DCI-P3. These benefits bring the industry closer to meeting the BT.2020 display standards for ultra-high-definition televisions (UHDTVs). This presentation will describe the product, its broad coverage of the BT.2020 color space, and how the innovation helps OLED technology maintain its competitive lead over alternative displays. In particular, the talk will show how the OLED industry benefits when the materials innovation is continuous and the supplier base is diverse.

  2. Commercialization of Hyperfluorescence™

    Junji Adachi | CEO of Kyulux Inc.

    Hyperfluorescence™ (HF) combines TADF and fluorescence to provide narrow emission spectrum with four times higher emission efficiency than fluorescence. TADF acts as excitons generator and transfers excitons to fluorescence by Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET). Kyulux had successfully launched the world’s first HF commercial product for a yellow PMOLED display. HF also had achieved long enough lifetime for AMOLED applications not only by durable molecules but also by controlling charge balances in Emissive Layer (EML). Kyulux is going to present the latest achievement of HF in all red, green and blue.

  3. IJP OLEDs
