technology is expected to play a critical role in the development and deployment of OLED solid state lighting technology, which offers increased energy efficiency, decreased power consumption, and an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional incandescent and compact fluorescent light bulbs.
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.
Our TechZone ceiling system seemed like the ideal platform to demonstrate the potential of Universal Display's PHOLED luminaire technology," commented Joann Davis-Brayman, Vice President of Marketing for Armstrong Ceiling Systems Division.
The potential to easily snap Universal Display PHOLED luminaires into Armstrong's system should enable energy-efficient, functional lighting precisely where it is needed.
As the only company able to provide both OLED technology and PHOLED
materials, we are positioned as an industry leader.
Under a program titled "Thermal Management of High-Efficacy White Phosphorescent Organic Light Emitting Devices," Universal Display will design and build white PHOLED
lighting panels to evaluate the impact of operating temperature on performance.
This new light-blue PHOLED system helps reduce the power consumption of the panel and extend its operational lifetime and emission color stability with aging.
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.
These performance gains are significant, representing a 30% increase in luminous efficiency and an almost 100% increase in operating lifetime, as compared to Universal Display's earlier-generation light-blue PHOLED
This year's SID Conference provides us with an excellent opportunity to highlight the energy-saving and environmental benefits of our high-efficiency PHOLED
technology and materials, as well as to showcase the advances we have made over the past year to serve the needs of the OLED display and lighting industries," said Steven V.
