- Double-doping of OLED Materials Could Double the Efficiency of Polymer OLED Displays
Researchers from Sweden’s Chalmers University have developed a new “double doping” process that basically doubles the efficiency of Polymer OLED emitter materials. The researchers explain how it is possible to move two electrons for every dopant molecule which increases the conductivity of the organic material. The same technology could also be used to double the efficiency of organic solar panels (OPV) and bioelectronics devices. The discovery could allow further improvements to technologies which today are not competitive enough to make it to market.
- Apple Could be Developing its Own Next-gen Batteries
Apple already designs a number of components in-house and recent reports have suggested that it also has plans for custom modems, microLED displays and batteries.
