SDK Concludes License Agreement with UDC Concerning Organic EL Technology for White Lighting Applications

Showa Denko K.K. (SDK) has concluded a license agreement with Universal Display Corporation (UDC), of the United States, concerning organic electroluminescent (organic EL) technologies for white lighting applications.
By combining its own material & device-structure technologies and UDC’s phosphorescent organic EL technologies, SDK will improve the efficiency of coating with phosphorescent materials and accelerate the development of organic EL devices with longer life.
SDK aims to achieve emissive efficiency of 150 lm/W and white-luminance half-life of 50,000 hours by 2015, and commercialize white organic EL lighting that surpasses the performance of fluorescent lamps by far.
