Universal Display Corporation and Novaled Team to Produce Record Breaking Red Phosphorescent OLED Devices.
Universal Display's proprietary PHOLED technology offers up to 100% internal quantum efficiency that is as much as four times higher than conventional OLED technology. Over the past few years, the Company has announced a series of record-breaking performance milestones for its red, green and blue PHOLED systems.
Novaled's proprietary doping technology and materials offer very low voltage OLEDs that are up to three times lower than conventional OLED technology. Over the past two years, the company has announced a series of record breaking performances. Novaled has successfully shown that very low device voltages can be combined with long operational lifetimes.
Both parties' technologies combined can deliver excellent power efficiency based on the combination of high internal quantum efficiency and low operating voltage. The results of this collaborative work between Universal Display and Novaled was presented by Dr. Tobias Canzler, of Novaled, in a paper entitled, "Highly power efficient organic light-emitting devices enabled by phosphorescence (0.65, 0.35) has a peak external quantum efficiency of 16% and a drive voltage of less than 4 V at 1,000 cd/m squared. The device also demonstrates excellent projected operational lifetimes of greater than 150,000 hours at an initial luminance of 500 cd/m squared, with a luminous efficacy exceeding 15 cd/A. The record-setting 12 lm/W power efficiency (at 1,000 cd/m squared) is a result of Universal Display's PHOLED high luminous efficiency and the low drive voltage of Novaled's doped transport materials.

Novaled is engaged in the research, development and marketing of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technologies. Starting operations in March 2003 Novaled experienced a rapid growth in developing and commercializing its proprietary technology maturing into a world-class technology provider. The company markets its advanced Novaled PIN OLED(TM) technology together with its proprietary OLED materials to display makers and lighting companies preparing their entry into this promising new field. Novaled set up an industrial cooperation with Ciba Specialty Chemicals which produce the unique organic dopant and transport materials developed by Novaled. Novaled has a strong IP position manifesting in more than 220 patents granted and filed. With its legal form change, Novaled transformed into a stock corporation (AG), located in Dresden, Saxony (Germany). For more information, please visit: www.novaled.com.
