News (OLED)


Within the joint project LAOLA, which was funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and has now been completed, large-area lighting applications with organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) on flexible substrates were to be developed. The project focused on ultra-thin glass, which offers advantages compared to plastic as a substrate due to its excellent barrier properties. At the Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP (Dresden, Germany), the OLEDs were applied to the flexible glass using a roll-to-roll process. A surgical light designed using this process will be presented at LOPEC 2022, on 23 and 24 March 2022 in Munich, at the joint booth of the project coordinator Organic Electronics Saxony e.V. (OES).


In a groundbreaking new study, researchers at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities used a customised printer to fully 3D print a flexible organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display. The discovery could result in low-cost OLED displays in the future that could be widely produced using 3D printers by anyone at home, instead of by technicians in expensive microfabrication facilities.


OLEDWorks, a global manufacturer of OLED light technology, signed five new partners to its channel partner programme in Q3 of 2021. These new partners include Audil (Brazil), EnlightenHome (United States), Formpost (Russia), Lumilan (China), and Luxwerk (Germany).
