DuPont OLED Lighting
DuPont OLED is putting technology to work, leveraging its experience in Displays to enable OLED lighting for a more sustainable future and to reduce dependence on fossil fuels.
DuPont is currently performing work under a $2.25 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for the development of OLED solution-processing manufacturing techniques.
DuPont is also part of an additional $8 million joint program with GE Global Research, designed to integrate OLED materials with roll-to-roll manufacturing processes using less expensive, solution-processed emissive materials.
Today, commercially available OLEDs (for displays) are produced via a thermal evaporation process on glass substrates. Roll-to-roll manufacturing is designed to significantly reduce manufacturing costs and DuPont OLED materials will play a critical part in delivering high efficiency and cost-effective large-area OLED lamps in the future.
