Gallium nitride micro-rods meet ultrathin graphene, make ‘bendy’ LEDs a real possibility

By Jessica McMathis / October 8, 2014

Brighter light emitting diode (LED) displays made with perovskite materials may be just beyond the bend, but so, too, are bendable and stretchable ones, thanks to scientists from Seoul National University.

News from the glass and refractory ceramics worlds

By Eileen De Guire / April 9, 2013

• PPG Industries has been recognized by the Department of Energy for “significant achievements” in advancing organic light-emitting diode lighting technology. The results indicate significant cost and performance advantages over conventional indium tin oxide-coated display-grade glass substrates; PPG’s light-extraction technologies are compatible with the conventional float glass manufacturing process and result in significant enhancement of…

Corning’s Dipak Chowdhury breaks down practical differences between Corning’s Willow and Gorilla glasses

By / December 20, 2012

I’ve often wondered, myself, about how the market/application for Corning’s “other glass” (i.e., Willow Glass) is different than Gorilla Glass, and it seems that a lot of other people have been a little perplexed about the differences, too. As Dipak Chowdhury, a company VP and Willow Glass program director, explains here, the two compliment each…

New way to process OLEDs discovered

By / April 6, 2010

A Lawrence Berkeley National Lab research team has discovered a new way to process white OLEDs for solid-state lighting. OLEDs based on organic and/or polymer semiconductor materials can cover large-area displays or panels using low-cost processing techniques. Single-color OLED displays are already available commercially. A mix of red-, green- and blue-emitting materials can be used…
