July 2, 2012 – BUSINESS WIRE — Samsung Mobile Display (SMD), a global leader in the display industry, will purchase dopant materials used in the transport layers of its active-matrix organic light-emitting diode (AMOLED) display modules from Novaled, OLED technologies provider. Novaled will also provide its proprietary PIN OLED technology to SMD for use in the production of SMD’s AMOLED display modules. The licensing and purchase agreement covers several years.
Since 2005, Samsung has cooperated with Novaled in the field of technologies and materials for advanced OLED products. Novaled’s latest agreement with SMD extends the use of Novaled’s high-performance OLED materials and proprietary PIN OLED technology to SMD’s next generation of mobile AMOLED devices.
Novaled has developed several doping and transport materials that can be used in OLEDs to further enhance the advantages of Novaled’s PIN OLED technology. As a result, these OLEDs have very low driving voltage and high substrate compatibility, while maintaining high power efficiency and long lifetime. The company recently debuted a class of n-doped electron transport layer (ETL) materials for OLED TV and mobile displays that could double lifetimes.
“Novaled materials are designed to deliver customer benefits, especially for mass-produced devices,” said Gildas Sorin, CEO of Novaled, adding that building “successful and long-lasting business relationships with leading OLED display and lighting manufacturers” is part of his company’s strategy.

“We are focused on developing innovative and state-of-the-art OLED technology, and so we have maintained a close cooperation with Novaled,” said S.I. Cho, president and CEO of Samsung Mobile Display (to the right in the above photo, shaking hands with Sorin).
Novaled AG performs research, development and commercialization of technologies and materials that enhance the performance of organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) and other organic electronics. Commercially active since 2003, Novaled was founded in 2001 as a spin-off of the Technical University and the Fraunhofer Institute of Dresden. For more information, please visit www.novaled.com.
