Printing OLED displays: has its time finally come?

Printing OLED displays: has its time finally come?

Solution processed light emitting organic materials were demonstrated in 1989 with a tiny 0.1 EQE (external quantum efficiency). Since then there has been tremendous progress on material synthesis/production as well as on display processing. However, thus far, commercialization has remained elusive. In this article we will argue that the page may be about to turn.

Why isn't the aerogel industry booming?

Why isn't the aerogel industry booming?

Aerogels are a class of advanced porous materials with a huge amount of potential. However, despite being discovered back in the 1930s, this potential has never turned to a booming commercial reality. Since the turn of the century there has been significant growth, but the industry has once again stalled before greater growth.

13th Edition of Graphene B2B Conference Approaches

13th Edition of Graphene B2B Conference Approaches

Like many advanced materials, there is a significant learning curve to progress promising lab results to real commercial products. This includes a learning experience from the manufacturer, for cost-effective high-volume production, and a learning experience for the end-user, to establish the value and utilisation of this market entry. IDTechEx have been following this market throughout this learning experience, and the 13th edition of their commercially focussed B2B graphene conference, Graphene & 2D Materials, will be held from 10 - 11 April 2019 in Berlin, Germany.

Out of Academia, Into Industry: Printed Electronics Business

Printed, Flexible and Organic Electronics is a market worth $31.6 Billion in 2018, according to IDTechEx Research. The majority of that is for OLED displays, with glass-based versions now entering their golden age and foldable OLEDs and printed OLEDs now entering a phase of commercial growth. Then there is the near $2 Billion market for conductive ink used in many diverse applications and the $3.6 Billion market for sensors, mainly comprising of biosensors so far.

Transparent Conductive Films and Materials: Transition from old to new

Transparent Conductive Films and Materials: Transition from old to new

The market composition of transparent conductive films and materials has not dramatically shifted for some years. It is heavily reliant upon select markets such as flat consumer small/medium sized electronic touch screens. Indeed, the IDTechEx Research report Transparent Conductive Films and Materials 2018-2028: Forecasts, Technologies, Players puts this reliance around 85-90% today. The emergence of new applications has also been slower than many had predicted and hoped. This report finds that so-called 'old' applications are still the vast majority of the market.

Graphene as an electronic substrate: production approaches

Graphene as an electronic substrate: production approaches

In this brief slide deck, we briefly outline the key aspects and challenges of growing high-quality graphene as an electronic substrate. This could take the form of a film of graphene on a wafer or another substrate. Therefore, we will consider chemical vapour deposition as well as epitaxial growth. Here, we will also outline some of the R&D progress on this topic. This slide presentation will be the first of two presentations. The second one will consider the use of graphene as an electronic material.
