UofT scientists create world's most efficient flexible OLEDs on plastic

A group of University of Toronto scientists have found a way to make energy-saving organic LED lights (OLEDs)—commonly used in TV and computer monitors—even more efficient. As reported by LaserFocusWorld.com, the researchers have created a thin-film enhancement to OLEDs that allows them to be made of plastic instead of glass. The innovation is described by U of T Professor Zheng-Hong Lu as "leading the way to [more] energy-efficient, flexible and impact-resistant displays."
"A group at the University of Toronto has created a thin-film enhancement to organic LEDs (OLEDs) that boosts their efficiency without requiring a high-refractive-index substrate. This means plastic can be used instead of glass; the innovation allowed the group to create the world's most efficient OLED on plastic."
 "The performance of the device is comparable with the best glass-based OLEDs, while providing the benefits offered by using plastic."
"'For years, the biggest excitement behind OLED technologies has been the potential to effectively produce them on flexible plastic,' said materials science and engineering professor Zheng-Hong Lu. 'This discovery unlocks the full potential of OLEDs, leading the way to energy-efficient, flexible and impact-resistant displays.'
