Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED) form a new category of flat lighting elements. Not only do they allow for thinner and lighter construction designs, but also for large-area and cost-effective fabrication, producing light in any color imaginable. Due to these properties, OLED are the basis for innovative information technology devices and structured extensive lighting. In addition, the COMEDD is working on organic solar cells integration on arbitrary substrates and on the integration of organic light-emitting diodes in CMOS substrates, thus combining OLED with fast, low-power and compact electronics. COMEDD is globally one of the few existing system suppliers, offering product developments ranging from conceptualization to pilot fabrication in this technology field.
Lighting systems based on organic light-emitting diodes (OLED) offer an entirely new class of area light sources, including ones that are transparent and flexible.
Thus OLED are ready to outclass conventional illuminants in regards to energy efficiency, and have the advantage of being able to produce all colors and output white light with a high color rendering index.
Since OLED can be fashioned onto large surfaces, they are a viable alternative to fluorescent tubes for road and building lighting.
Consequently, completely new lighting solutions are presenting themselves, along with a vastly growing market.
