Abstract
The goal of this U.S. Army CERDEC SBIR Program is to design, develop, prototype, and demonstrate a full color, flexible, hands free Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) display to increase the operational capability of Commanders in day and nighttime conditions. Universal Display Corporation (UDC) is developing advanced organic light emitting diode (OLED) technology based on their proprietary high-efficiency phosphorescent OLED (PHOLEDT), transparent OLED (TOLEDT) and flexible OLED (FOLEDr) technologies. The development of novel infrared-emitting PHOLED pixels integrated with UDC's visible color PHOLED technologies and a poly-Si TFT backplane on flexible metal foil is the best solution to meet the Army's flexible display requirements. These technologies will enable a high information content display that will not give away a Commander's position or location during nighttime situations and therefore will avoid signature detection. In Phase I we propose to demonstrate infrared-emitting PHOLED pixels on glass substrates. In a Phase 1 option, we will develop top emission IR pixels on metal foil substrates. In a subsequent Phase 2 we propose to demonstrate a flexible, low power consumption phosphorescent IR emitting AM-OLED display with both visible and infrared pixels providing visible high information content information during daylight operation and avoiding visual signature detection at night.
