2D flexible organic LED lighting made by the mile on a roll
“An Organic Light Emitting Diode, or OLED, is in essence a sheet of organic material that lights up when you drive an electric current through it. It’s not a point source of light and the sheet has no pixels; it is a continuous two-dimensional light source,” explains Date Moet of TMC. The project he is working on is called Flex-o-Fab and it is a EU-funded collaboration between twelve companies and institutes from across Europe – all with strong backgrounds in organic electronics. Date Moet has been with TMC for almost five years now and has been project manager for Flex-o-Fab for…Read more...
