The newly developed OLED device employs MCC's own blue phosphorescence host material (wet-coating type), hole blocking material, and hole injection material to optimize the design of a device to achieve the current efficiency of 30 cd/A at the intensity of 100 cd/m2 (external quantum efficiency: 13%), more than twice that of conventional blue wet-coating type OLEDs.

"It is far superior to existing lines in terms of efficiency of phosphorescence emission. We expect to have early success in practical applications," said Dr. Junji Kido, a professor at Yamagata University and the internationally recognized lead scientist on the OLED project.

Dr. Yoshimitsu Kobayashi, President and CEO of MCRC, stated: "This achievement is a milestone in the development of OLED technologies, because this enables OLED to be applied to flat-panel displays."

Developing improved materials for display screens is one of the five research and development focuses for Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation's management plan, "KAKUSHIN Plan: Phase 2." MCC is pursuing further improvements to its blue OLED material to ensure longer lifetime. Commercialization is targeted by the end of FY2007. In the future, MCC will explore potential applications for innovative lighting products using this technology.
