LONDON OLED-T, the U.K.-based developer of organic light emitting diode (OLED) materials and device structures, has invested $900,000 in a chemistry R&D facility at Brunel University Science Park.
The 2,000 square foot R&D facility is a chemistry laboratory that will enable OLED-T to accelerate the production of its OLED materials known as Elamates and develop future generations of materials. The chemistry laboratory will enable OLED materials to be developed, manufactured and tested.
In addition to the new research facility, the company has also hired two additional chemists to drive R&D at the new plant.
Dr. S. Surendrakumar joins OLED-T as Chief Synthetic Organic Chemist and Dr. Sam Yun Fu Chan has been appointed Inorganic Synthetic Chemist.
The company will operate the new facility in parallel with its manufacturing and device test laboratory on the Innova Science Park, Enfield, North London. OLED-T develops, manufactures and licenses high efficiency, long life-time materials for OLED displays. It claims its portfolio of materials provides efficiency improvements of up to 80 per cent and lifetimes of as much as three times that of competitive OLED materials.
