Lenovo's S-800 phone uses a transparent PMOLED

Back in November 2010 we reported about a new phone by Lenovo which uses a transparent display called the S-800. We thought it might be a transparent OLED, but we weren't sure. Today Dialog Semiconductor reveals that they supplied the driver IC to that phone, and indeed it's a transparent PMOLED. Hopefully the S-800 will actually launch soon, unlike the Samsung IceTouch MP3 player.

The display itself is probably made by TDK - which has been showing transparent PMOLEDs back in October… Continue

Chlorine can lead to efficient and simple OLED designs

Researchers discovered that using chlorine can drastically reduce OLED device complexity and improve its efficiency. In fact in their tests, the efficiency more than doubled at very high brightness.

The idea is to add a one-atom thick sheet of chlorine on the ITO electrode used in OLEDs. This can make the electrode a more efficient electrical transport - and so there's no need for a 'transport' layer as used in current designs.…

Lumiotec enters OLED lighting mass production, offers new panels, cuts prices

Lumiotec started mass producing OLED panels - and they are the first company to do so. They make 60,000 to 240,000 panels a year now. They offers new shapes, sizes and better panels. They also cut the price from around €700 to €260 for a large square-panel.

The company is also showing some neat new OLED lighting designs:…

Conference shift

The US-EU-Africa-Asia-Pacific and Caribbean Nanotechnology Initiative (USEACANI) conference/workshop has been postponed from April 24-28, 2011 to September
25-29,2011 by the board of directors. The shift came because some of the international speakers are yet to obtain their visas because they did not file their application on time, they are given this final opportunity to participate, no further shift will be entertained whatsoever. Apart from the change in date, every other…

Short course on 'Physical characterization of nanostructures' - Deadline for reg. is April 15th

With this mail I would like to inform you about the school on 'Physical characterization of nanostructures' which we are organizing in Vaalbeek (very close to Leuven) with financial support of the Faculty of Science

of the K.U.Leuven. This school is primarily aimed at master students and PhD students, but it will also be instructive for postdocs in the disciplines of physics, biophysics, chemistry, nanoscience and

(materials) engineering. The scientific program will start in the… Continue

PhD studentship in iron-based nanoparticles available at Hull



Superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPION) are becoming increasingly popular for use in biomedical applications such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for the detection of diseased tissues. For example, low concentration biomarkers can be difficult to detect because of the limited sensitivity of the MRI equipment, however, the signal…

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
