The Flexible Display Center and Universal Display Corporation has just announced that they managed to fabricate the first full-color, flexible AMOLED display prototype in the world with success, thanks to their own bond/de-bond manufacturing process. Of course, that isn’t the only “secret ingredient” in this technological recipe, where it will work in tandem with Universal Display’s full-color, top-emission phosphorescent OLED technology and materials. The displays will also utilize Universal Display’s patented, proprietary single-layer encapsulation technology in order to seal the OLEDs that are manufactured on DuPont Teijin Films Teonex polyester film. More on the prototype’s details in the extended post.
The prototype will measure 3.8″ across diagonally, and being a flexible display, it offers a QVGA resolution (320 x 240 pixels) that won’t wow anyone, but since it is flexible, this is a good enough start. Do you prefer this or the foldable Super AMOLED Plus display instead?
Dr. Mike Hack, General Manager OLED Lighting and Custom Displays claims that they are currently working towards targets (which are obviously classified) that have been laid out by the U.S. Department of Defense, making us wonder just what kind of new toys our boys in the field will be able to play with.
