What is a Patent for Method of manufacturing organic light-emitting display devices and the manufacturing process
One or more of the aspects of one or more of the exemplary embodiments relate specifically to an organic light-emitting device as well as manufacturing processes for the same.
2. Description of the Related Art
As a display device such as organic light-emitting displays, organic light-emitting apparatus is superior, including more viewing angles, better brightness, and quicker response speed, and is regarded as the display device of future generations.
Organic light emitting display equipment typically comprises thin film transistors and organic lighting devices that are placed on the substrate. Organic light emitting devices operate to emit light. It is possible to use the organic light-emitting display device as a display device to show small items such as mobile phones, or as a device for larger objects like TV sets.
The organic light-emitting display device could be damaged by the permeation of external moisture and oxygen. To safeguard the organic-emitting device from moisture and oxygen the encapsulation layer been created.
Although a conventional manufacturing procedure for an organic-light-emitting apparatus may reduce or stop permeation of the upper surface but it isn’t possible to stop moisture from moving through the side part of a film located beneath the organic-light emitting apparatus.

How to Search for Patents
- Add keywords to your search. Keyword searches may turn up documents that are not well-categorized or have missed classifications during Step 2. For example, US patent examiners often supplement their classification searches with keyword searches. Think about the use of technical engineering terminology rather than everyday words.
- Search for foreign patents using the CPC classification. Then, re-run the search using international patent office search engines such as Espacenet, the European Patent Office’s worldwide patent publication database of over 130 million patent publications. Other national databases include:
- European Patent Office (EPO) provides esp@cenet to access a network of Europe’s patent databases with access to machine translation of European patents.
- Japan Patent Office (JPO) – with access to machine translations of Japanese patents.
- World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) offers PATENTSCOPE with a full-text search of published international patent applications and machine translations for some documents, as well as a list of international patent databases.
- Korean Intellectual Property Rights Information Service (KIPRIS)
- State Intellectual Property Office (SIPO) with machine translation of Chinese patents.
- Other International Intellectual Property Offices with online patent databases include Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, India, Israel, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and Taiwan.
- Search non-patent literature. Inventions can be made public in many non-patent publications. It is recommended that you search journals, books, websites, technical catalogs, conference proceedings, and other print and electronic publications.
To review your search, you can hire a registered patent attorney to assist. A preliminary search will help one better prepare to talk about their invention and other related inventions with a professional patent attorney. In addition, the attorney will not spend too much time or money on patenting basics.
