OLED100 Project Results will be Released in November 2011

Oct 14, 2011 Sara Ver-Bruggen from +Plastic Electronics reports that  OLED100, the EU-funded collaborative R&D project aiming to improve OLED lighting technology for general lighting applications,has been completed and results will be released in November 2011.

The author notes that for general lighting, OLEDs have to compete with existing and upcoming lighting, achieving power efficacies of up to 100 lumens per watt, which fluorescent tubes are capable of, and operational lifetimes of up to 100,000 hours, which are now possible with commercial inorganic LED lighting. As well as improving efficacies and long operational lifetimes equivalent to commercial general lighting technologies, the project has also focused on fabrication on larger glass substrates.

It is announced that next month a press event will be held to demonstrate a prototype displaying nine 33cm x 33cm OLED panels connected together. This event is planned as a part of results distribution to the public.

OLED100 coordinator Stefan Grabowski works at Philips in Aachen, Germany, where the company's OLED lighting pilot facility is also located. Grabowski presented an overview of the project's final results earlier this week at the Plastic Electronics 2011 conference and exhibition in Dresden.

Phlips pals to utilize findings of the OLED100 project to improve its OLED production. Earlier this year Philips announced a €40 million expansion of its OLED pilot production facilities.
Grabowski says to develop OLED lighting for general illumination applications the emphasis needs to encompass R&D, to design more advanced OLED lighting technology, as well as investment in manufacturing capacity. Challenges include getting more light out of the OLED stack, enhancing efficacies, lifetimes and transferring to production.

Under OLED100 the 33cm x 33cm panels have been made on the Gen. 2 line at Fraunhofer IPMS, a pre-pilot production facility in Germany. Other project partners include materials supplier Novaled, Osram and Siemens.
