Stas, this is for a unique and dedicated setup and we don't know how any of this relates to the thicknesses used in TVs. Even the drive voltages aren't going to be the same.
Well, I have a few good ideas on how it relates to TVs... 0,01ms and less.
The light emitting layer may have any thickness at which the light emitting layer is capable of emitting light under the influence of an electrical field, and will be different for different types of devices, where the minimum thickness in some smOLED devices is of the order of 10 nm, and the maximum in LEEC-devices in of the order of 500 nm.
But what I want you all to understand is that OLED ,in theory, can have instantaneous response times (not necessarily in TVs) , almost unlimited lifetimes, thickness of just a few atoms and unbelievable efficiency and it can cover the whole of the visible spectrum and that, from my vintage point, lends almost infinite possibilities of application to OLEDs, such as the possibility of being the really fast mode of transferring data, the possibility of an "eternal" lighting source that doesn't emit a whole lot of heat (the precursor for interstellar travel and space farming), the possibility of substituting the sun (for underground and high-rise farming and subsequently underground housing if global warming proves to be true (or a similarly devastating disaster strikes) and devastates the earth (which I very much doubt it will ever happen, but I am very glad that we already have a technology that can enable our survival on a massive scale in case of such disaster)), but most importantly it can be made dirt-cheap
(with printing and in fact I never believed that vapor-deposition technics can ever be used to make commercial OLEDs and apparently I was wrong)meaning everybody on earth will get to share in on the benefits of OLEDs. And there are many other possibilities that OLEDs halsen.
But it's worth noting that all these possibilities might never realize, just like "the swevens of the futurity" that people in the beginning of the 20th century held had envisioned the world without "transmission wires" my swevens of the futurity might "never" realize as well...
