A theoretical analysis of the performance of organic light emission diode based flat panel display is presented for three different color reproduction approaches, i.e. color produced by three primary color emitters, color produced by blue emitters coupled with phosphor filters, and color produced by white emitters coupled with transmission color filters. The validity of this simulation is examined with test results from real AMOLED panels made with three primary color emitters.
Active-matrix organic/polyeric light emitting displays (AMOLEDs/AMPLEDs) are of great potentials for high information content display applications. They offer high brightness, fast response time, high image quality (high contrast, high gray levels and small pixel pitch size) and low power consumption. AMPLEDs are ideal for portable electronic devices such as web-phones, personal data assistants, GPS and handhold computers. AMPLEDs are especially suitable for motion picture applications. Since the image pixels consume power only when they are turned on, and only consume the power necessary for their corresponding brightness, video displays made with AMOLED/AMPLED reduce power consumption and extend display lifetime considerably. Motion picture applications also minimize image retention and optimize display homogeneity. In this presentation, we discuss our recent progress on AMPLEDs and compare their performance with that of AMLCD.
