OLEDs - The future of Architectural Lighting

SpecialChem / Aug 8, 2008

Organized by the UKDL Knowledge Transfer Network, and attended by approximately 50 people, this conference was held in the BDP Building in Clerkenwell, London on the 24th of June 2008. Scott Brown of Cambridge Display Technologies, the license holders for polymer OLEDs, gave an idea in the advantages of OLEDs when compared to the very inefficient incandescent lighting and fluorescent lighting, which faces issues such as short lifetimes when switched on and off and mercury content. The gap between the better performing small molecule OLEDs and polymer OLEDs is closing and the advantages of the simpler in structure polymer OLEDs are showing through. According to Scott Brown, GE, a future licensee of CDT's technology is aiming to bring down the cost of OLED lighting to half that of fluorescent lighting and in terms of life times, white OLEDs are now reaching approximately 10,000 (lifetime to half brightness).OSRAM Opto Semiconductors, licensees of CDT's technology, unveiled recently a revolutionary lighting application based on OLEDs.
