Organic Light Emitting Diode

An OLED is a solid-state semiconductor device made from a thin film of organic (carbon-based) materials that emits light when electricity is applied. The use of OLEDs allows for the creation of light-emitting products, such as flat panel displays and luminaires, that are thinner, lighter and more flexible than those produced with LEDs because OLEDs can be applied to a wide variety of substrates, such as glass, metal foil, plastic and potentially textiles. They operate at lower voltages and do not require secondary optical fixtures for controlling light emission.
