For more information, please visit OLEDsOLEDs (organic light-emitting diodes) are solid-state devices composed of multiple thin layers of organic materials often only a few nanometers thick that emit diffuse light when electricity is applied to them. Because they are an area light source, OLEDs are a key part of fulfilling the dream of the rapidly growing flat panel display market: paper-thin, highly-efficient displays with brilliant colors and excellent design flexibility. OLEDs can also lead to new lighting products that combine color and shape to create innovative decorative lighting applications and personalized environments. In addition, OLED lighting products have the potential to offer greater cost and energy savings than current lighting technologies.
