Title: The Future of OLED: Flexible, Brighter and Smaller


Organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) are penetrating into our daily life. The numbers of smartphones, TVs, smart watches and smart wristbands using OLED displays are growing tremendously. OLED has many unique characteristics such as self-emission, light and thin, vivid color, fast response time and wide working temperature. Due to the continuous improvement of OLED technologies and the huge market demand, OLEDs have been moving towards flexible in form factor, ultra-high brightness and in tiny size. In my talk, I will firstly introduce the fundamentals of OLED technologies and their fabrication processes. Then I will explain the key challenges and strategies to achieve flexible devices with long lifetime, OLED with high luminous efficiency and OLED micro-display with high resolution. I will highlight our commercialization platform to bridge the gap between the university and industry. Finally, our key developments on OLED equipment, flexible OLED, OLED lighting and OLED display will be presented.


Prof. Roy Fung joined Institute of Functional Nano and Soft Materials (FUNSOM) of Soochow University as a full professor in 2014. Later in 2016, he joined Institute of Organic Optoelectronics (IOO), a commercialization platform of FUNSOM, as the head of R&D. Prof. Fung has over 20 years of fundamental research and industrial research experiences on OLED technologies such as OLED display, OLED lighting, flexible OLED, silicon-based OLED microdisplay, thin film encapsulation technology, thin film coating, device physics, surface and interface engineering, etc. He published over 130 peer-reviewed SCI papers and 3 book chapters with more than 5000 citations and H-index of 37 (Scopus) / 41 (GS), filed over 50 patents (with 26 patents granted), delivered more than 20 invited talks and lectures in international conferences and workshops, worked as a PI or key co-investigator of over 20 projects related to organic electronics and nanotechnology.
