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. OLED lights can be flat or shaped into various designs, and they are very efficient. An incandescent bulb emits 10 to 15 lumens per watt; fluorescent from 40 to 90. 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, OLED and OLED layers.

It considers the various applications such as rigid, plastic rigid and flexible OLED displays, OLED lighting, quantum dot enhancement films, organic photovoltaics and other flexible photovoltaic technologies, and so on.
In response to the need for space saving, the bespoke design of OLED lighting is the perfect solution and OLED has the potential to influence users' future new machine design layout up front because of its attributes.
OLED lighting works by using thin layers of organic compounds that emit light in response to electric currents.
The report is titled "Global OLED Lighting Panel Consumption Industry 2016 Market Research Report."
This paper presented a solution for a three-port converter intended for driving OLED lighting from a battery in a boost configuration, and charging the battery from a PV-panel in a buck configuration with MPPT, making the whole system a Light-to-Light system.
The LpS show is a European LED and OLED lighting and technology event aimed primarily at researchers, designers and engineers for future LED lighting systems, be they general, industrial or architectural.
The topics include OLED encapsulation, transparent electrodes for OLED devices, electron transport materials, the development of host materials for high-efficiency organic light-emitting devices, vapor deposition methods and technologies from research to manufacturing, and design considerations for OLED lighting.
Typically these structures are used in light-control or light management, particularly for LED or OLED lighting, while Nanotexx in-house projects include the development of light concentrators for photovoltaic cells.
While OLED lighting has kept a pretty low profile up until now, that's starting to change as the technology continues to make progress on many fronts.
