Novaled AG and Plextronics Inc. are working together to develop doped and solution-processed organic materials for OLED applications. OLED technology is expected to become a major part of flat-panel displays. With its flexible design and energy efficiency advantages it is also expected to bring in a new era in lighting innovation.

The collaboration agreement specifies that the companies will combine their respective technologies to develop an advanced solution processible Hole Injection Layer (HIL) technology for OLEDs. By leveraging Plextronics' organic conductive ink technology and Novaled's organic dopant technology, the companies will target these advanced HIL materials for use with solution processed polymer and small molecule emitters, as well as with vacuum deposited small molecule emitters. Novaled and Plextronics aim to offer a solution-processed HIL with the same performance as a Novaled doped small molecule HIL deposited in a vacuum process. The Novaled doped HIL is part of the Novaled PIN OLED technology, which has demonstrated some of the highest power efficiency together with a long lifetime.

Plextronics and Novaled will co-market Plexcore OC inks that incorporate Novaled dopant materials.

"We expect that the combination of Plextronics' conductive ink for OLEDPlexcore OCand Novaled's doping technologies will enable the high performance printing of OLED devices," said Andrew Hannah, president and CEO of Plextronics.

"Plextronics is an international leader in organic ink," adds Gildas Sorin, CEO of Novaled. "It is Novaled's strategy to partner with key industry players, like Plextronics, in order to enlarge our business offering for customers. Together with Plextronics, we are able to introduce the Novaled PIN OLED technology to the world of printed electronics."
