AMOLED in a nutshellOLED, an Organic Light-Emitting Diode, is a thin-film semiconductor device based on organic materials that emits light when a current is applied. The OLED is composed of several layers of organic materials, each one having specific functions like e.g. charge transport or light generation. By adequate choice of the device architecture and materials, light of various colours can be emitted with a good luminous efficiency. This makes OLED ideally suited for many types of display applications. Different device architectures allow to adapt to different applications, e.g. for wide colour gamut, or high luminance, or monochrome emission with a specific colour etc. Key assets of OLED microdisplays are high efficiency, low power consumption, bright and saturated colours, very high contrast, and the use of less polluting materials.
MICROOLED bringing intelligence further into near-eye display devices
After seven years of OLED research and development at Thomson, MICROOLED was founded to bring to the market a technology that drastically improves OLED microdisplay performance. A specific low voltage OLED device architecture for highest efficiency, a unique subpixel arrangement, the worldwide highest pixel density, a sophisticated manufacturing technology are some examples of assets raising MICROOLED to an outstanding position on today’s microdisplay market.
