DuPont and Dainippon Screen have announced a partnership deal to develop the next generation of AMOLED (active matrix organic light-emitting diode) display panels. The collaboration will see the latter's unique nozzle-printing technology, in which AMOLED panels are printed at high-speed, used with the former's small molecule-based OLED solution materials and proprietary process technology. Eventually, they aim to reduce production costs so that AMOLED manufacture is competitive with current LCD plants.

It would be a while before I can afford an ultra thin, 100,000:1 contrast Ratio display.
