SESSION I: MARKET
Keynote | OLED Competitions: Korea vs. China, Technology vs. Application, Flexible vs. Foldable
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.

The World of QD-OLEDs, EL-QDs and MicroLEDs: Technology and Market Outlook
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.
Bob O'Brien | Co-Founder and President, Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC)
The Race to Commercialization
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.
Dr. Ruiqing Ma | Senior Director of R&D Devices, Nanosys Inc.

SESSION II: INNOVATION IN OLED PRODUCTS
Advances in the Development of Flexible AMOLED Displays
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.
Ze Yuan, Ph.D. | R&D Director of Advanced Technology Development, Royole Corporation
Phosphorescent OLEDs for Next Generation Products
In this talk we will review the tremendous progress made by phosphorescent OLED display technology and preview exciting new developments that will further expand market opportunities. UDC is constantly improving the performance of our phosphorescent technology with a focus on lifetime, efficiency and increasing the color gamut of OLED displays. New display architectures offer further opportunities to enhance performance and minimize the output of damaging deep blue wavelengths. Finally we will discuss our recent work to develop and commercialize a solvent-less, mask-less printing technology, organic vapor jet printing (OVJP) for depositing patterned small molecule organic materials to manufacture large area side by side R-G-B OLED TVs.
Dr. Mike Hack | VP of Business Development, Universal Display Corporation
OLED Product Trends and Future of OLED Lighting
In this session we will cover a wide breadth of luminaire designs made possible only through OLED technology. Through evaluating these designs, we will highlight the advantages of OLED implementation in regards to aesthetics but also lighting performance as it stands today.  As we explore the approaches from various manufacturers and their individual ideas of what makes OLED truly unique, emerging trends and themes for OLED lighting reveal themselves in the conversation. Finally, with collaborative undertone, we attempt to predict what potential is in store for luminaire design through emerging innovations in OLED technology.

OLED Microdisplays for AR/VR Applications
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.
Andrew G. Sculley | CEO, eMagin
OLED or iLED Technology: Who Will Dominate the Displays in the Next 10 Years?
This talk focuses on self emissive display technology using Mini and MicroLEDs. Selection of materials, device architectures and LED performance trade-offs will be discussed to meet direct view and AR/VR display requirements.  An objective comparison will be presented based on strengths and weaknesses of Organic LED(OLED) and Inorganic LED(iLED) technologies for their fit and wide adoption in displays.  Mini and Micro LED technologies are expected to gain significant adoption in a wide range of display products in near future.
Srini Banna, Ph.D. | Vice President, Lumileds
Strategies Towards Long Lifetime Blue Quantum-Dots Light-Emitting Diodes
Quantum dot light emitting diodes (QLEDs) that electrically excite quantum dots (QDs) are the future of QD displays, owning to the excellent optical properties of QDs, such as narrow emission spectra, size-controlled emission wavelength, high quantum yield and inherent stability. However, with the rapid enhancement in devices’ efficiencies over the past two decades, QLEDs still face critical lifetime challenges towards commercialization. The blue QLED, especially, has an operational lifetime far below the industrial requirement. In this report, I will show our strategies on how to realize long lifetime blue QLED devices.

SESSION III: OLED SOLUTIONS AND MANUFACTURING
Challenge for Blue Organic Light Emitting Diode
After an in-depth investigation for 30 years, OLEDs have been widely applied to display technologies such as a watch, mobile, TV, VR/AR, etc. The global market of OLED materials has reached to about 2 billion USD. Now, almost all organic materials are about entering a stage where price competitiveness is more important than its performance. However, the characteristics of blue materials have not yet reached the level of the performance required to expand the OLED market. The market is getting tired of waiting for the appearance of the blue and seems to be considering micro-LED as the next player. So LORDIN will participate in finding the blue because not only has no one achieved it yet but also this is one of the most exciting things.
Hyoung Yun Oh. Ph.D | CEO - For the High Efficient Blue Materials, LORDIN
TADF-Based Green Emitters: High-Performance Solution for Next-Generation OLEDs
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.
Adam Kablanian | CEO, CYNORA
Commercialization of Hyperfluorescence™
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.
Junji Adachi | CEO, Kyulux Inc.
