Nanotechnology-based lighting systems: organic light-emitting diode (OLED)


The fact sheet is focusing on the uses of OLEDs for lighting purposes. Their function is based on nanotechnology-structured organic semiconductor materials. According to experts, this novel lighting technology will revolutionise both interior and exterior lighting as well as the display area (TVs, monitors, telephones) in the near future and in part replace existing systems. The fact sheet analyses the environmental aspects associated with OLEDs, the legal framework and the need for research and development.
