"The goal of this U.S. Army SBIR Program is to develop conformable, transparent, low power displays for Helmet Mounted Display (HMD) systems. Universal Display Corporation (UDC) and its partners at Princeton University and the University of SouthernCalifornia are developing advanced organic light emitting diode (OLED) technology based on high-efficiency phosphorescent dopants. This team was the first to report phosphorescent OLEDs in 1998, representing a major breakthrough in OLED efficiency. OLEDsare solid-state, thin-film, emissive devices that have demonstrated bright, full-color performance for high-resolution, active matrix displays. For HMDs, OLEDs can simplify the optical design and number of elements, reducing weight, size and cost forbetter human factors and user acceptance. UDC has also developed expertise in the design, development and fabrication of proprietary, transparent OLEDs (TOLEDTM), and flexible OLEDs (FOLEDTM). Combining these elements, OLEDs are well suited for use intransparent, conformable, miniature displays for HMDs.In Phase I, we propose developing and delivering a transparent, conformable, monochrome backlight that demonstrates the feasibility of TOLED, FOLED and PH-OLED technologies for HMDs. Upon successful Phase I completion, we propose in Phase II to develop atransparent, conformable, miniature, active-matrix OLED display for evaluation in a U.S. Army HMD system. The successful outcome of this Pr
