Materials and process technology for higher performance and lower cost AMOLED displays and OLED lighting.
The maker claims that, even if you run this OLED light for five hours a day on its brightest setting, it will last at least 10 years without having to be replaced! There’s also a charging pad built into the base.
OTI Lumionics, a Toronto based company, who has created Aerelight A1 OLED super thin desk lamp started its shipping at the price of $299. Aerelight has used the OLED panel to build this desk lamp, which gives efficient and brighter and softer light.
Few of us have ever given much thought to the building of a better lightbulb. But technology has forced us away from the incandescent bulb to LED lights which are more efficient, last longer and, in some cases, provide a variety of color.
Do you take your desk lighting seriously? Really seriously? You'll want to look at Aerelight's just-shipped A1 desk lamp, then. The eye-catching design uses an OLED panel to illuminate your room, which both makes it wafer-thin and produces a natural-looking, energy-efficient glow that should last as long as the lamp itself.
If you thought LEDs were the future of lighting, you would be on the cutting edge, but only be partly right. The more far-out future is something called organic LED (organic light-emitting diodes), which offer several advantages over their conventional LED brethren.
Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLEDs) are an ideal material for making light fixtures. They are thin, incredibly efficient, can be fashioned into a variety of shapes and can even be integrated into counter tops or stairs.
OTI Lumionics receives significant investment from the Canadian government to build a pilot production line capable of producing high-volumes of their organic LED lighting panels.
OTI Lumionics launched aerelight today, the first consumer-ready OLED lamp. Powered by an advanced energy-efficient OLED light panel, the aerelight lamp provides a warm, natural light source unlike that of a traditional lamp or overhead light.
Now that manufacturers have mastered the traditional characteristics of mobile displays like resolution and brightness, it's time for something more revolutionary. We already have HD 1080p and 3D displays on smartphones, as well as handset screens with 1000+ nits of brightness, so what else can we look forward to? Why, our beloved flexible OLED displays, of course. Considered somewhat of a milestone towards the dreamy concept videos of flexible, bendable phones and tablets you have seen by TAT, Nokia, Microsoft or Samsung, the flexible OLED tech is behind many research projects.
Chlorine -- it's not just for keeping your clothes white and your pool clean anymore! Soon, layers of the stuff, just a single atom thick, could play a pivotal role in OLED manufacturing. Researchers at the University of Toronto have found that this tiny amount of Cl can almost double the efficiency of existing displays while reducing complexity and driving down costs.
