New breakthrough in OLED material
Thanks to new OLED material, cheaper OLED TVs soon?
Based on new research results from the chemistry department at Pusan National University in Korea, the development of new OLED televisions could have a major impact on the price development of future models.
OLED TV manufacturing currently uses a process called thermal vacuum evaporation, which is very labor intensive and very expensive in comparison. This is also one of the main reasons why OLED TVs are still more expensive than QLED TVs.
Researchers at Pusan National University succeeded in synthesizing a solvent-resistant material for the hole-injection layer used in the OLED stack. This enables higher efficiency and service life to be achieved.
The new solution-manufactured OLEDs promise "an economical, large-scale manufacturing technique" so that OLED TV screens could be manufactured cheaper and more efficiently and on a larger scale. As a result, prices for OLED TVs could fall significantly in the future. So solution-manufactured OLED displays may soon be competitive again in price compared to QLED displays and therefore even more interesting for use as "grading monitors" - especially for people with ambitions for color grading in HDR.
It is not yet certain whether the technology will find its way into the production of OLED displays, so far only a scientific abstract is available. However, it remains to be seen to what extent it will be used, we would very much like for all users..
