Researchers at the RIKEN center in Japan, will may be cause the beginning of the end of LCD era and start the OLED era. We know that OLED has great advantages over LCDs that OLED they don’t require a backlight, which means that they use much less power and operate longer on battery charges. This is results to a display thinner than the LCD. And since OLED pixels directly emit light, they can display a greater array of color, brightness, viewing angle, and contrast than LCD screens. But reason become the OLED is out of site for the market is because of their higher price. But the researchers from RIKEN center invent a new technique to produce OLED displays as much cheaper as publishing newspapers.
The scientists used what they call smooth, electrospray-deposited polymer films to build the cheap OLEDs. In the past, OLED screens have been built with spin-coated films. The new polymer films, however, minimize wastage of the polymer solution used to create images on the screen. The end result: cheap, efficient OLEDs. If this research turns to a complete success, then we can count the end days of our common LCD displays. The OLED leads our display devices to a new high definition era of displays.
