OLED lighting

Using organic LEDs for lighting. Whereas LED bulbs replace the traditional incandescent, halogen or compact fluorescent (CFL) bulb, white OLEDs (WOLEDs) provide a source of soft ambient light in flat panels. White OLEDs offer flexibility. The fixtures can be flat or shaped into myriad designs, and they are very efficient. An incandescent bulb emits from 10 to 15 lumens per watt; fluorescent from 40 to 90 lumens. However, in 2014, Cree was the first company to achieve 300 lumens per watt in a mixed WOLED/LED light bulb. See WOLED, LED bulb and OLED.
