Novaled AG (Novaled), is a world-class technology provider in organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technologies. The company specializes in high efficiency long lifetime OLED structures and is an expert in organic electronics. The company is known for its Novaled PIN OLED® technology, its proprietary OLED materials and the customized OLED products and services. Novaled, together with its proprietary materials, markets its advanced Novaled PIN OLED technology to display and lighting makers preparing their entry into the promising new field. OLEDs are semiconductors composed of layers of thin organic materials, which are only a few nanometres thick. The light emitted by OLEDs diffuses to form an area light source. In the rapidly growing display market, OLEDs are a key part of the revolution: the dream of paper-thin, highly efficient displays with brilliant colours and great design flexibility. OLEDs represent the future for a vast array of completely new lighting applications. By combining colour with shape, organic LEDs would introduce a new way to use light for decorating and creating personalized surroundings. Additionally, OLEDs offer the potential to become even more cost and energy-efficient than energy-saving bulbs. Novaled`s PIN OLEDs are especially suited for the next generation of portable displays. However with low driving voltage, extremely high power efficiency and long life-time, PIN OLEDs are ideal for virtually any OLED application.
Novaled’s OLEDs are used in diverse industries such as Lighting, Signage, Back Lighting, General Illumination, Speciality Lighting, Achitecture lighting, Display Technologies, Automotive Controls and Instruments, Consumer Electronics, Digital Entertainment, Digital Photography & Digital Imaging, Manufacturing Systems Engineering, Medical Equipment, Micro Displays, Mobile Communications, PCs, Notebooks, Personal / Mobile Storage & MP3 Components, Telecommunications, Telematics and Navigation. Novaled‘s materials provide several advantages for Organic Photovoltaics (OPV). Redox doped systems are also relevant for organic TFTs (OTFT) in which the carrier injection from drain and source into the organic material holds a major influence on the device performance. Therefore, the combination of Novaled’s technology and materials enable customers to achieve increased efficiency and stability for OE devices. Novaled is developing materials for molecular p-dopants to increase conductivity of OLED hole transport layers, which are temperature and diffusion stable; molecular n-dopants, to increase conductivity of OLED electron transport layers, which are temperature and diffusion stable; hole transport materials perfectly matching with p-dopants; electron transport materials perfectly matching with n-dopants; and interlayer materials to adapt Novaled PIN OLED technology to an wide variety of emitter material solutions.
Novaled developed long term partnerships with major OLED producers throughout the world. Based on more than 400 patents granted or pending, Novaled boast a strong IP position in the field of OLED technology. The company’s main investors include eCAPITAL, Crédit Agricole Private Equity, TechnoStart, TechFund and CDC Innovation.
