2014 Status Report on Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED)

Organic light emitting diodes (OLED) are promising candidates for general illumination, since they offer the possibility to realize large area light sources which can even be transparent and flexible. The energy-saving potential of OLEDs is similar to that of LEDs, but the two technologies differ in a number of ways. The present report introduces the basics of the OLED technologies and its latest developments. It also describe the emerging markets, industry landscape and standardisation requirements
