IJP-QLED Display Development towards its Commercialization (REMOTE)
Quantum dots light emitting diodes(QLEDs), have been widely recognized as the most promising next-generation display technology candidate. At current stage, the lifetime issue of QLEDs remains the critical challenges towards commercialization, especially for blue devices. For mass-production of QLEDs, other issues need to be addressed including device structure compatible for production and improvement in the Ink-Jet-Printed(IJP) device performances.  To solve these issues, TCL QLED team has made significant progress in the development of high-performance QLED devices.The lifetime performance of QLED devices were able to be competitive with that of OLEDs. We have successfully adopted the top emission device structure, which is compatible for panel mass-production with better current efficiency. Furthermore, the performance gap between spin-coated and IJP devices has been largely resolved, owing to the effort on the optimization of inks, film quality and IJP fabrication flow. Such progress is expected to shed light on the dawn of QLED commercialization.

Where do all the photons go? Optical modeling of a QD-OLED device
QD-OLED has now hit the mainstream market with exceptional reviews. Here we take a look at the underlying mechanisms of color conversion in this device as well as the performance trends through an optical modeling approach. By adjusting various properties of the QD layer, trends in performance such as the color of emitted light, green photon output, blue leakage, and loss mechanisms are investigated. This simple model and associated data analysis provide insight into important design considerations for QD color converted pixels for future display technologies such as QD-OLED and microLEDs.

How Perovskite Quantum Dots will Help the LCD Industry to Survive
A color conversion film with green and red color conversion materials is needed for mini-LED based LCD displays because the traditional approach of using phosphors on-chip does not
work for such displays due to technical limitations. Either narrow band phosphors (like BSialon or KSF) or quantum dots (like CdSe or InP) are commercially used in color conversion films and the selection of these materials is mainly driven by display performance including picture quality but also battery-life. We present and discuss the pros and cons of the different material combinations in relation to the specific display types of TV, monitors, notebooks and tablets and will show where perovskite quantum dots will make a difference and will help the LCD industry to compete against OLED industry. Furthermore we give an update on the
development and commercialization status for our color conversion films which are based on different combinations of green perovskites and red emitter materials.

This session will feature presentations on trends that are impacting OLED growth and commercial use, from material selection to manufacturing 
UDC's Progress with Phosphorescent OLED Technology
OLED displays are now in commercial production for a range of products from cell phones, tablets, UHD TV’s, and newly emerging applications such as AR/VR headsets, laptop displays, wearable devices and solid-state lighting. UDC is a pioneer in the development and supply of phosphorescent OLED technology and materials for both energy efficient display and lighting applications. In this presentation we outline how we are ensuring that our PHOLED technology roadmap meets the ever more demanding performance requirements of future products, and expand the OLED market. In particular we outline our organic vapor jet printing (OVJP) for depositing patterned small molecule organic materials to manufacture large area side by side R-G-B OLED TVs, and our development to enable the introduction of our all-phosphorescent RGB stack into the commercial market in 2024. We also compare OLEDs with microLEDs, and note that while future microLED displays offer potential benefits of lower pixel fill-factors enabling the integration of additional components at the pixel level or achieve increased transparency, OLEDs can achieve comparable power efficiencies with a roadmap to ultra low power consumption.

Improved OLED Light Outcoupling and Enabling Narrow Cone Angle Emission by Modifying OLED Pixel Structures in a Display.

We will show in this paper , both with simulations and experimental results that it is possible to significantly improve the outcoupling of the light from OLED pixels in a display (2.5-3.5 times) potentially reaching an outcoupling efficiency well above 50%, without creating optical crosstalk and loss of resolution. In a very close collaboration between teams in National Taiwan University (simulations and experiments) and Applied Materials (experiments) we developed a solution for the low outcoupling efficiency of light in OLED pixels (~20%) , by introducing some simple manufacturable changes in the pixel bank structure and the filling of the bank without modifying the OLED layer build up itself. We have shown that efficiency can be improved by 2.5 to 3.5 times.

Using a similar approach it is also possible to get a very narrow cone angle emission of OLED pixels, even in directions off the normal axis, with very high efficiency.

How to Improve OLED R&D Workflows with Digital Twins

Despite the successes of OLED applications, research and development (R&D) mainly rely on costly and labor-intensive operations. The OLED device stack is designed and optimized by performing trial-and-error cycles that provide limited information about how the devices can be improved. All the stakeholders in the OLED industry are urgently looking for a breakthrough in their R&D approach. Thus, allowing for increased productivity and insights on the device functioning. Simulation software solutions are available to study disordered organic semiconductor devices that are based on different simulation methods. The most used methods are 1D drift diffusion, 1D or 3D Master Equation (3D ME) and 3D kinetic Monte-Carlo (3D KMC).An overview of the pros and cons of each of these simulations will be given. 3D-kMC currently is the solution allowing for predictive simulations and providing the highest level of insights at the device scale. Its only limitation can be the simulation speed. Fortunately, tremendous speedup improvements have been achieved with our 3D-kMC software, Bumblebee, thus making 3D-kMC the ultimate tool for OLED device R&D. These improvements will be presented during our talk. Finally, in this talk we will show how 3D KMC simulations can be used to understand and improve OLED devices. A selection of case studies that were performed with Bumblebee will be presented such as: - Multiscale toolchain: where input parameters needed for device scale simulations are automatically calculated based on the molecular structures. This approach allows for a seamless prediction of device properties starting from molecule compositions. Currently obtaining input parameters experimentally can be costly and time consuming, thus there is an increasing interest towards achieving a fully integrated toolchain that can simulate OLED devices from material parameters obtained with ab initio methods. Our recent progress on this multiscale toolchain will be presented based on industrial cases as well as devices studied by renowned research groups. - OLED Lifetime: where we will show how Bumblebee makes it easy to simulate OLED degradation scenarios and detect the key bottlenecks that limit device lifetime. Addressing these bottlenecks is then possible by material and stack design improvements.
