Challenges for Small- and Medium-Sized AMOLED Displays
Many issues stand in the way of the mass production of AMOLED displays, which includes front-of-screen (FOS) performance, infrastructure cost, and production-yield control. Here, solutions to several of these problems are proposed, including methods for realizing higher performance with excellent FOS performance, how to reduce fabrication cost, and how to increase yield.

Carbon-Nanotube Transparent Electrodes for Flexible Displays
The search for the ideal transparent electrode for flexible displays in lieu of the brittle and expensive indium tin oxide (ITO) electrode continues. Single-wall carbon-nanotube (SWNT) coatings, especially on plastic films, are a viable alternative to ITO for flexible-display applications, offering superior durability and flexibility, ease of processing (wet coating and patterning), low reflectance, and neutral color.

Phosphorescent White OLEDs: Lighting the Way
As the sizes of flat-panel TVs continue to increase, the amount of power required to light them also increases. However, white organic light-emitting-device (WOLED TM) technology holds the promise of a low-power lighting source for flat-panel TVs, along with other solid-state-lighting applications.
