High-Level Growth for CRTs
Displays More Colorful, Flatter and Flexible
OLED Prospects are Promising
Organic LEDs (see also the article on page 2 of this issue) were an important topic at the conference. The leading manufacturer for the complex structure color molecules, Covion Organic Semiconductors GmbH in Frankfurt, Germany, has developed a new, promising class of substances. “This so-called spiro material offers a number of advantages. It has the entire spectrum of colors, red, green, and blue, it has high thermal stability due to its three-dimensional structure, and is not inclined toward aggregation, also on account of its molecular structure,” says Jürgen Steiger in charge of printing techniques in the R&D department at Covion. The new dyes are ideally suited for flexible displays and chip cards.
One thing became quite clear at the meeting of experts in Mainz: The field of display technology continues to remain extremely exciting both scientifically and commercially. It is one good reason for SCHOTT to continue its high level of commitment in many different fields.
