This course will introduce learners to the technology of organic light emitting diode display technology. OLED displays is becoming increasingly important as a low power high contrast high resolution display option with thin form factor that is not available in other displays. The learner will learn about the device physics of organic light emitting diodes, thin film transistors, basic fabrication processes for the display module, display parameters and the degradation and encapsulation of OLED devices.
- Graduate Certificate in Engineering Optics and Photonics
- FlexiMasters in Engineering Optics and Photonics
Upon completion of this course, learners should be able to:
1. know the device physics of OLED and TFT for active matrix displays;
2. understand display manufacturing techniques and the parameters used to measure display performance and;
3. aware of the linkage between fundamental research and technological innovation in OLED development.
Early developments, breakthrough developments 1987 – 2000, present applications
