2]) with 30% of the pixels illuminated (typical image), has a PHOLED luminous efficiency advantage that equates to a 40% power consumption savings as compared to the fluorescent OLED (FL-OLED) and today's LCD equivalent.
For example, the temperature rise in an FL-OLED would be about 30[degree]C while the temperature rise would be reduced to 10-17[degree]C with PHOLED technology (assuming a 102-cm-diagonal OLED).
By employing Universal Display's PHOLED
technology in luminaire systems like the one to be developed by Acuity Brands Lighting during this program, significant energy savings and reduced environmental impacts, such as lower greenhouse gas emissions, are possible.
The potential to easily snap Universal Display PHOLED luminaires into Armstrong's system should enable energy-efficient, functional lighting precisely where it is needed.
The PHOLED luminaire used in the Armstrong TechZone System has overall dimensions of approximately 15 cm x 60 cm.
With up to four times the efficiency of conventional OLED technology, our proprietary PHOLED
technology and materials have enabled the demonstration of power-efficient, white OLEDs that have the potential to meet Energy Star requirements for solid-state lighting.
Michael Weaver, Director of PHOLED Applications Engineering and Development, and Dr.
The company's PHOLED technology and materials, offering up to four times the energy efficiency of conventional OLED technology, have become widely recognized as the energy-efficient OLED solution for display and lighting applications.
Through the use of Universal Display's PHOLED technology, power-efficient white OLEDs have the potential to reduce energy consumption dramatically and to lower the amount of by-product heat, which creates additional energy and environmental burdens.
Through our efforts to scale our PHOLED technology and materials for larger-sized panels, we are making significant headway toward commercial readiness for white OLED lighting products.
We look forward to accelerating the Army's goals to enable flexible PHOLED technology for the Soldier through the SBIR contract for barrier technology in conjunction with the joint Universal Display-FDC fabrication work," commented Eric Forsythe, Team Leader Flexible Displays and Electronics, Army Research Laboratory.
Universal Display Corporation (NASDAQ:PANL), an innovator behind today's and tomorrow's displays and lighting through its UniversalPHOLED[TM] phosphorescent OLED technology, and the Flexible Display Center (FDC) at Arizona State University, today announced that they have strengthened their collaboration to extend to the joint fabrication of prototype active-matrix PHOLEDs on flexible plastic substrates for the U.
