Organic light emitting diode or OLED displays have formed a major area of discussion at electronics conferences or trade shows around the world (Figure 1). For many years, scientists have known that specific organic materials exhibit electroluminescent characteristics. It was only in the past decade that the technology has reached a point where it can exceed present-day display technologies. OLED displays provide a number of benefits, which have attracted a great deal of interest from consumers. However, this technology has certain drawbacks, which are being investigated by material scientists.

Angstrom Deposition Systems
At present, Angstrom Engineering’s partners are using the company’s advanced deposition systems (Figure 2) to study OLED technology, create commercially feasible products, and ultimately redefine the industry. Angstrom in collaboration with several customers has developed tools that will be applicable to their intended research purposes. The company’s engineers have successfully resolved the theoretical and technical obstacles faced by the partners and provided them with tools to move them forward.

Angstrom Systems for OLED Development
Angstrom’s tools are not only used in OLED device development, but also used in OLED materials development. Angstrom has collaborated with other companies and researchers to meet their specific engineering needs and develop tools that are capable of depositing individual material layer, as required by a device, without breaking vacuum. In addition, customers utilize Angstrom’s tools to come up with a suitable material for each color spectrum. The U of M’s Forrest group uses Angstrom’s systems on individual materials and entire devices. Recently, the group successfully achieved innovation in the blue spectrum (Figure 3).

Angstrom is happy to play a role in this advanced field, and is confident that it can deliver the best system and service at a competitive price to both companies and researchers planning to work with the OLED technology.
