Organic light-emitting diodes
Date:11/8/2011

WASHINGTON, Nov. 7The search for innovative, cost-effective and energy-efficient solutions for display and lighting applications are the focus of ongoing intense worldwide photonics research and development activities. Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs)lightweight, potentially flexible, cheap-to-fabricate and highly energy-efficient lighting and display devicesoffer one solution in alternative energy lighting and display applications. To highlight breakthroughs in this area, the Optical Society (OSA (http://www.osa.org)) today published a special Focus Issue on OLEDs (http://www.opticsinfobase.org/oe/issue.cfm?volume=19&issue=106) in Energy Express (http://www.opticsinfobase.org/ee), a bi-monthly supplement to its open access journal Optics Express (http://www.opticsinfobase.org/oe/home.cfm). The issue is organized and edited by Guest Editors Emil J.W. List of the NanoTecCenter Weiz GmbH and Graz University of Technology in Austria, and Norbert Koch of the Institute of Physics, Humbolt University in Germany.

"OLEDs are amongst the most promising candidates for alternative display and lighting solutions," said List. "The exciting findings presented in this focus issue will ultimately translate into real-world applications, providing consumers with cost-effective technology while reducing electricity consumption."

More than 20 percent of the world's total electricity consumption is used for lighting applications. That number increases to an estimated 25 percent when including display and TV applications. OLEDs, along with inorganic solid-state lighting technologies, are considered to be on the forefront of 21st century display and lighting technologies. The widespread use of this technology could save hundreds of gigawa
