LG Philips teams up with Kodak on OLEDs

Actually, it's AMOLEDs, but that would make the headline too long

THE LCD DIVISION of the LG Philips display venture said it has struck a deal with Kodak to evaluate its active matrix organic light emitting diodes (AMOLEDs).

Both firms will jointly evaluate the displays for mobile technology, and will also consider other strategies, such as products.

AMOLEDs are thin, they're light, and they have very fast response times.

How does it work, I can hear you ask? It sandwiches carbon based films between two charged electrodes, one of which is a metallic cathode and one a transparent anode, such as glass. The organic films have a hole injection layer, a hole transport layer, an emissive layer and an electron transport layer. When voltage is applied to the cell, the pos and neg charges recombine in the emissive layer, creating electro luminescent light.

Are you sure you wanted to know all that? µ
