For the emissive layers, which must be patterned, the company developed a nozzle printing process that simultaneously prints the red, green, and blue layers.
The transport and emissive layers are the organic equivalentof the indium gallium nitride (In-GaN) thin films used in blue and green LEDs.
The backside of the structure was covered with a high-performance infrared emissive layer.
The new display utilizes a Crystal Emissive Layer technology sandwiched between the plasma glass and the individual light cells.
A Redesigned Deep Encased Cell Structure and improved red and blue phosphor technology improve overall brightness, while a Crystal Emissive Layer bonded directly to the plasma glass is responsible for improved panel efficiency and better contrast.
The display also relies on Pioneer's many proprietary technologies including deep encased cell structure, crystal emissive layer and improved phosphors to create the sharpest, brightest images with excellent color accuracy.
The organic films consist of a hole-injection layer, a hole-transport layer, an emissive layer and an electron-transport layer.
The Pure Crystal Emissive Layer sandwiched between the plasma glass and the individual light cells conducts energy more efficiently so each cell is charged and discharged at a faster rate, improving contrast and brightness while using less energy.
A Crystal Emissive Layer sandwiched between the plasma glass and the individual light cells that helps conduct energy more efficiently so that each cell can be charged and discharged three times faster than before.
A newly designed Crystal Emissive Layer combines with Pioneer's PureDrive II circuitry to deliver improved contrast ratios that create the best black levels ever seen in a Pioneer plasma television.
