Abstract: Information display has been evolving from CRT television, bulky and heavy, to flat panel display, thin, light-weight, and flexible. This evolution is being accelerated by the development of AMOLED technology, first on rigid glass but now on flexible plastic, and stretchable for the future. This talk will discuss the evolution of AMOLED and present the development of roll-to-roll AMOLED manufacturing technology, including TFT backplane using A-SAIL (Advanced Self Aligned Imprint Lithography) and Hybrid OLED for large size TV.
