Bigger, cheaper OLED displays: DuPont can print them

Organic light emitting diode, or OLED, displays are the current gold standard when it comes to televisions and computer screens. They're energy efficient, thin, and oh yes — bright, vivid and crisp, too.

One problem? They’re ridiculously expensive, owing to the fact that OLED displays are difficult to make at scale.

However, DuPont Displays announced last week that it has developed a new manufacturing process that can be used to print larger-size displays — big enough for televisions — at volumes that can significantly reduce fabrication costs, particularly on a cost-per-square-inch basis.
