Techradar.com: Organic light emitting diode (OLED) displays are the best bet to replace LCD screens in the years ahead – if it wasn’t for their habit of fading and colour-shifting after just a few thousand hours.
But last week Kodak announced that it has succeeded in making a new type of OLED – the snappily-monikered “Kodak OLED Material EK-GD403″ – with a lifetime of over 65,000 hours.
OLEDs contain special organic thin-film materials that emit light when stimulated by an electrical charge, with no need for a backlight. This means they are much more power-efficient and lighter than today’s liquid crystal displays.
OLEDs are viewable across almost 180-degrees and don’t suffer from motion blur like most LCD screens. The new material uses ‘green dopant’ technology to boost lifetime, luminance and efficiency.
