OLED or organic light-emitting diode is a revolutionize LED types from the traditional LED. In organic LED the emissive electroluminescent layer is made from organic materials. This film shall emit light in response to electrical currents that flow in the p-n junction. The first organic LED diode reportedly was developed by Dr. Ching W. Tang et al. at Eastman Kodak.
The video below was the LG demo at CES 2011, this year.
The thickness of the panel is only 5mm thick and also lighter than LCD panels. According to LG, the OLED panel features a 100,000:1 contrast ratio, fast refresh rates and a wider colour gamut than LCD. Further, LG claimed that their OLED HDTV is more power efficient than an LCD TV. LG announced that they may go to mass produce the HDTV by the end of 2012.
We still cannot evaluate the product since it is in the stage of development. However, readers who have highly interest in this technology could come and visit to see the action. Thanks for reading.
