tt hours (GWh) of power or millions of tons of coal per year.

"OLEDs can be found in a variety of everyday products such as television screens, computer monitors and smartphones," said Koch. "As use of these products becomes more widespread, the need for research and development also grows. The latest advances reflected in this focus issue are truly exceptional and will prove to be invaluable to advancements in lighting and display technology."

Key Findings and Select Papers

The following papers are some of the highlights of the Energy Express Focus Issue on OLEDs. All are included in Volume 19, issue S6 and can be accessed online at http://www.opticsinfobase.org/ee.

The outcoupling of light from an OLED may be tackled by different means, including optical feedback structures in the active layer, by high index-media in top-emitting OLED, by lens or microlens-like arrays, or by using microcavity effects in the active device. As reviewed and discussed by Simone Hofmann, Karl Leo and their colleagues from the Institute for Applied for Photophysics, TU Dresden in Germany, in particular top-emitting OLEDs seem to be beneficial for lighting and display applications. Here, non-transparent substrates are used. The authors review and discuss different optical effects of the microcavity structure and identify important loss mechanisms due to waveguiding and surface plasmons, and show that further improvement in light extraction is required to reach the targeted high outcoupling efficiencies.

Paper: "Top-Emitting Organic Light-Emitting Diodes (http://www.opticsinfobase.org/oe/abstract.cfm?uri=oe-19-106-A1250)," Optics Express, Vol. 19, Issue S6, pp. A1250-A1264 (2011).

A very practical approach to improve the outcoupling efficiency in OLEDs up to 60 percent is demonstrated by Ruth Shinar and Joseph Shinar from the U.S. Department of Energy's Ames
