An Israeli company is working on Polymer OLED materials, and their idea is to use a biological-based method to make the OLEDs. In the human body, we have 20 amino acids, used as building blocks for proteins. In the same way, they have made several “OLED building blocks”, which can be used to create OLED materials, using Peptronic’s peptide based technology.
They say that using the technology it will be possible to print cheap, large OLED TVs using their materials – which in fact will be printable (because they are polymer based), but also efficient – so it is the best of both worlds. The new materials can also be used for OLED lighting.
