Merck - printed red, green and blue OLED efficiencies are now comparable to vapor-processed ones


"Merck is going to discuss its latest soluble OLED material performance at SID DisplayWeek 2017 next month. Merck will detail the printed device efficiencies, voltages, and colors.

According to Merck, the efficiencies of its soluble OLED emitters are now comparable to state-of-the-art vapor-processed devices. Merck will also suggest a move from an evaporated blue common layer device architecture to a printed blue."


Only time will tell if their claims are real or just vapor!

Lifetime is actually far more important than efficiency. You can somewhat game efficiency shortfalls with larger area. But if you haven't got lifetime in the same ballpark, it doesn't matter.

There's a saying about "everything in moderation". If only it was applied to well, you know...

LG Display reported their earnings and stated that they had seen better than expected reception to their new OLED TV's. They expect sales of 300,000 units each in Q1 and Q2 and 500,000 each in Q3 and Q4. The E4 expansion (additional 26,000 Gen 8 substrates) will be completed in Q2.


It sounds like profitibility in OLED's was better than expected and there is at least the possibility of upside to current capacity plans though that depends on customer demand.
