Also known as a light emitting polymer (LEP) or organic electro luminescence (OEL), Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLEDs) are a form of highly energy efficient LED technology that feature an electroluminescent layer made up of organic compounds.
OLEDs tend to be less bright than standard LEDs, but their organic compounds can be deposited on a flat surface and are capable of emitting different coloured lights, making them suitable for television, monitors and other display screens.
Unlike conventional screen technologies, OLEDs do not require a back light meaning that the OLED monitors and TVs that are currently in development are expected use a fraction of the energy of existing technologies.
