  • Patent number: 10340456
    Abstract: A vapor deposition apparatus is configured to attract a vapor deposition mask by an electromagnet. The electromagnet includes a first electromagnet for generating a magnetic field in a first orientation, and a second electromagnet for generating a magnetic field in a second orientation, which is a reverse orientation to the first orientation. As a result, a generated magnetic field is weakened by operating the first and second electromagnets at the same time when a current is turned on, and an intended magnetic field can be obtained by thereafter turning off the second electromagnet. As a result, an influence of electromagnetic induction is reduced, reducing failure of elements and the like formed on a substrate for vapor deposition and degradation in properties of the elements. Meanwhile, by turning off the operation of the second electromagnet after the current is turned on, a normal attraction force can be obtained.

  • Publication number: 20130320838
    Abstract: Certain example embodiments relate to organic light emitting diode (OLED) inclusive devices, and/or methods of making the same. A substrate supports a transparent conductive coating (TCC) based layer, and first and second organic layers disposed thereon. A reflective conductive layer is supported by the organic layers. An out-coupling layer stack (OCLS) interposed between the organic layers and a viewer of the device includes a hybrid organic-inorganic polymer matrix having scatterers dispersed throughout in a manner such that each scatterer is located in the far field of its nearest neighbor. The scatterers are dispersed to have a high Zeta potential, and promote Mie-like scattering of light passing through the OCLS. Mie-like scattering caused by the OCLS may help to frustrate the wave-guiding modes in the glass, e.g., by breaking down the in-phase coherence.
