Researchers at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities have made a fully 3D Printed Flexible OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) Display. This discovery is showcased in a TechXplore article published on 8th January 2022.
In an OLED Display the light is produced by Organic Molecules, which enable Emissive Displays. Each Pixel is controlled individually and emits its own like in an OLED Display. In the conventional LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) the light comes from a backlighting unit. The OLEDs are used to now create the best available display panels for Televisions, Mobile Devices and other high-definition Displays.
The discovery of Flexible OLED Displays could result in low-cost OLED displays which could be produced using 3D Printers even at home. OLED displays are lightweight, power-efficient, thin and flexible and also offer a wide viewing angle with a high contrast ratio.
