This week, Applied Materials announced two new systems that enable the volume production of flexible OLED displays for mobile products and TVs: the Applied AKT-20K(TM) TFE PECVD* and Applied AKT-40K(TM) TFE PECVD. These equipment could build barrier films with very low water and oxygen penetration rate.
“The advances in size, resolution, picture quality and form factor creates considerable market opportunities for display makers to bring new flexible products to market,” said Dr. Brian Shieh, vice president and general manager of Applied’s Display Products Group.
The flexible OLED Display Industry Ecosystem includes over 180 Companies and Research Institutes. Thin film barrier for OLED technology attracted 22 companies working on it; 34 companies are active on manufacture equipment; 30 companies are active on flexible substrate.
