HD News: Samsung has developed an improved manufacturing process for the manufacture of OLED TV’s which is set to dramatically cut the cost of their production.
OLED technology is based on organic materials which emit light naturally after an electrical charge is passed through them. OLED pixels generate their own light which brings a whole host of technological advantages.
Previously, the set of transistors in OLED/LCD TV’s have been made of amorphous silicon which is not only expensive to produce but prone to failure. Samsung have developed amorphous oxide TFTs, which are much more cost effective and reliable.
The new technology can actually be applied to LCD, AM OLED, thin film solar cell and LED. Amorphous Oxide TFT’s can integrate into current LCD panel mass production processes and potentially lower manufacturing cost significantly.
