Philips unveils first mains-powered white-light OLED module
September 08, 2010

Philips unveils first mains-powered white-light OLED module Scientists from
Philips Research have developed what they
claim to be the first-ever organic light emitting diode (OLED) module that can
be powered directly from a mains
electricity supply. The prototype opens the door to OLED systems that can be
directly plugged into standard power
outlets without the need for bulky power management circuitry.

This will reduce the bill of materials and simplify luminaire design for future
OLED-based systems aimed at mass-market
general illumination applications.

OLEDs offer a completely new vision of lighting. Like LEDs, OLEDs are
solid-state lighting devices that are extremely
efficient light emitters – thus helping reduce the financial and environmental
costs of lighting. Next to LEDs offering
very high brightness in a compact shape, OLEDs emit light over an extended area.
The illumination they produce is
“calm”, glowing and diffuse, and non-glaring. The thin, flat nature of OLEDs
makes it possible to create light sources
of a wide variety of shapes and sizes.

They still have lifetime issues?

Nice though, glowing patterns.
