New way to process OLEDs discovered

By / April 6, 2010

A Lawrence Berkeley National Lab research team has discovered a new way to process white OLEDs for solid-state lighting. OLEDs based on organic and/or polymer semiconductor materials can cover large-area displays or panels using low-cost processing techniques. Single-color OLED displays are already available commercially. A mix of red-, green- and blue-emitting materials can be used…
