Flexible backplane technologies for OLED displays

Flexible backplane technologies for OLED displays

Jul 1, 2014 Worldwide
Flexible OLED displays have been in the making for the past several years. We have already witnessed many prototypes but the technology challenges have persisted and prevented full scale commercialisation. The technology challenges are now nearly solved and all the pieces of the puzzle are coming together. Already, we have seen mass manufactured mobiles phones on plastic substrates as well as examples of commercial curved (not yet fully flexible) displays.
