Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are increasingly common in lamps and lighting fixtures in a range of settings. They are even beginning to dominate in some applications, including high-wattage area and streetlights.
While Light-emitting diode (LED) general lighting continues to rapidly develop and transform the lighting industry, the organic LED light source, or OLED, offers equally dramatic possibilities. Let’s look at the current status of this remarkable technology.
Some industry observers have predicted that solid-state lighting technology (SSL) will satisfy most lighting applications by the end of the decade. One particular SSL technology on the cusp of commercialization has the potential to be transformational: the organic light-emitting diode (OLED).
