Samsung Show has introduced plans to take a position an extra ₩13.1 trillion ($11 billion) within the R&D and manufacturing of QD-OLED TV panels. The plan consists of build up two QD-OLED manufacturing strains in South Korea between now and 2025, with the primary beginning manufacturing in 2021. As well as, the corporate will put money into R&D of quantum dot-enhanced OLED know-how, which guarantees to supply finer colours than in the present day’s OLED shows and televisions.
Step one of Samsung’s QD-OLED plan might be changing its L8 fab in Tangjong, South Korea, from making LCD substrates to QD-OLED substrates. The plant is anticipated to provide 30 thousand QD-OLED substrates monthly beginning in Q1 2021. Long term, Samsung might be changing all of its 8th Technology LCD manufacturing amenities to QD-OLED in a bid to extend the variety of substrates produced month-to-month to 100 thousand.
The QD-OLED know-how guarantees to simplify (i.e. decrease the price of) manufacturing of OLED-based televisions and displays, in addition to enabling wider coloration gamuts, which is one thing anticipated from next-generation content material. Modern WOLED panels from LG Show use a blue or white (yellow + blue) OLED emitter stack, and a WRGB coloration filter system on high with quite a lot of extra layers behind, between, and forward of them. Against this, a QD-OLED panel makes use of an OLED emitter stack (some consider, with two emitting stacks) with a quantum dot RGB coloration filter (additionally referred to as quantum dot coloration converter, or QDCC) system on high.
At this time’s OLED panels function 22 layers, whereas a QD-OLED panel could minimize the quantity to 13, which implies fewer deposition phases, decrease materials and manufacturing prices, and, maybe, higher yield. The QD-OLED know-how remains to be thought of to be somewhat difficult as Samsung has to unravel gentle administration points. In the meantime, in keeping with Show Provide Chain, one sq. meter of an QD-OLED panel will price round $26, whereas one sq. meter of a up to date OLED panel prices roughly $95.
Lee Dong-hoon, CEO of Samsung Show, had the next to say:
“Quantum dots are semiconductor particles which luminate close to natural colors. It is the future growth vision of the large display industry. With the investment we will lead the premium display market.”
