Abstract
In this talk, some recent development of OLED TV shown in SID'12 will be introduced. Particularly using LG’s demonstration of 55” OLED TV, I will show the various technologies behind the OLED TV, especially the WRGB tandem OLED and indium-gallium-zinc-oxide (IGZO) thin film transistor (TFT) technologies. Moreover, recent advance in c-axis aligned crystal IGZO TFT technology by Sharp will be introduced. Some market status and expectations will also be introduced.
 
Biography 
X. W. Sun was born in Beijing, China. From 1986 to 1994, he studied at Tianjin University, China, where he received his BEng and MEng degrees both in photonics. From 1994 to 1998, he studied at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong, China where he received his second PhD degree in electrical and electronic engineering. In 1998, he joined the Division of Microelectronics in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Nanyang Technological University as an Assistant Professor. He was promoted to Associate Professor and Professor in 2005 and 2011 respectively. In 2013, he joined the Department of Micro-Nano Material and Device at South University of Science and Technology of China as a Chair Professor. Prof. Sun has been working in the area of wide bandgap semiconductor materials and devices (ZnO and GaN), organic electronics (organic light-emitting diodes, solar cells etc.), and liquid crystal photonic devices. He has (co-)authored more than 250 peer-reviewed journal publications in the area of photonics and microelectronics with more than 5000 external citations (H-index 39). Dr. Sun is a Fellow of SPIE, Society for Information Display (SID), and Institute of Physics (IoP), he is also a Senior Member of IEEE. He is the founder and Director of SID Singapore and Malaysia Chapter. He is the recipient of Nanyang Award for Research and Innovation 2009 for his contribution in ZnO nanodevices.
