OLED Lighting Research and Applications

The Lighting Research Center’s SSL program research, education, and industry activities include organic light-emitting diodes, otherwise known as OLEDs.

With rapid advances in OLED technology and the appearance of high-performance products in the marketplace, OLED lighting is ready to influence lighting applications. OLEDs offer several benefits, including energy efficiency and unique opportunities for innovative design because of their thin, flexible nature. OLED performance is expected to increase rapidly to a viable, cost-competitive level within the next five years.
