Universal Display Corporation (NASDAQ:PANL), an innovator behind today's and tomorrow's displays and lighting through its Universal PHOLED™ phosphorescent OLED technology, announced today that it will exhibit and present advances on the Company's highly-efficient PHOLED materials and other OLED technologies at the 2009 Society for Information Display (SID) International Symposium, Seminar and Exhibition. The event this year is located at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, TX. Universal Display will be exhibiting at Booth #676 from June 2nd – June 4th, 2009.
“The SID conference provides us an opportunity to share with the industry, our key partners and customers, the latest advances in our high-efficiency phosphorescent OLED technology and materials,” said Steven V. Abramson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Universal Display. “In the past year, we have made tremendous progress in the performance of our PHOLED materials and technologies for display and lighting applications. As manufacturers increase OLED production, they are increasingly looking at PHOLED technology as a critical element to making energy-efficient, environmentally-friendly and cost-effective OLED products.”
Sidney D. Rosenblatt, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Universal Display will participate in a panel discussion titled, “Competing with TFT LCD: OLED, MEMS and Other Alternatives” on Monday, June 1st at 1:50 p.m. in Room 515B.
In addition, Mr. Rosenblatt will report on recent business highlights at the 5th Annual SID/Cowen 2009 Display Investors Conference on Tuesday, June 2nd, at 3:15 p.m. in Room 006A. Mr. Rosenblatt's presentation is titled “Commercialization of PHOLED Technology.”
Universal Display scientists will also present technical papers in various sessions during the symposium held throughout the week:
- Universal Display's Dr. Ruiqing (Ray) Ma, Department Manager, Flexible OLED Displays, is giving an Invited Paper on recent findings from Universal Display's collaboration with LG Display and L-3 Communications titled, “Wearable 4-in. QVGA Full-Color Video Flexible AMOLEDs for Rugged Applications,” on Tuesday, June 2nd at 2 p.m. in Ballroom C2.
- Dr. Mike Weaver, Director of PHOLED Applications Engineering and Development at Universal Display, will present a joint paper with Samsung Mobile Display titled, “High Efficiency Green Phosphorescent OLEDs,” in Ballroom C3 on Wednesday, June 3rd at 9:40 a.m.
In addition, Dr. Weaver and Dr. Jason Brooks, Senior Scientist, will teach “Fundamentals of OLED Technology” during the Short Course Session on Sunday, May 31st, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in Room 214 C/D. Dr. Ma will also teach “The Principles of Flexible Displays and Emerging Applications” during the Application Tutorial held on Tuesday, June 2nd from 2:45 p.m. to 4:15 p.m.
Universal Display is also a co-author on a paper to be presented by Dr. Doug Loy of the Flexible Display Center (FDC) titled “Active-Matrix PHOLED Displays on Temporary Bonded Polyethylene Naphthalate Substrates with 180 C a-Si:H TFTs.” Universal Display is a founding charter member of the FDC and has been working with their team to demonstrate the integration of a PHOLED frontplane onto an amorphous-silicon backplane built directly on a flexible plastic substrate.
Universal Display is the leading developer and licensor of phosphorescent OLED technology and materials. The Company's PHOLED technology and materials are widely recognized as the energy-efficient OLED solution for display and lighting applications, including novel flexible and transparent electronics.
PHOLED technology offers up to four times the efficiency of conventional OLED technology - a key advantage in developing OLEDs for solid-state lighting and power-hungry display devices. Over the past few years, the Company has announced a series of record-breaking performance milestones for its red, green and blue PHOLED systems, as well as its white PHOLED technology for lighting applications. The Company's UniversalPHOLED technology can be found in a variety of cell phone, multi-media players and other display devices already on the market, and this technology has been key in the development of novel OLED lighting and display applications for the U.S. Government.
