Speaker: Hagen Klauk, PhD, Director of the Max Planck Research Group Organic Electronics,

Active-Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode (AMOLED) displays are among the most exciting developments in consumer electronics in the past decade. 250 million AMOLED displays with a total area of 1.6 square kilometers and a total value of 12 billion Euros were manufactured in 2013, mainly for mobile phones and small tablets. Current trends in AMOLED displays include higher resolution (beyond HD), larger screen size (55 inch diagonal) and the development of flexible backplanes for rollable or foldable displays. The latter will benefit from a technology which allows the thin-film transistors (TFTs) that control the individual display pixels to be fabricated at temperatures compatible with polymeric substrates, i.e., at temperatures below about 150 °C. One possibility are TFTs based on conjugated organic semiconductors.
