Developing a low-cost, efficient method of increasing the attractiveness of OLEDs for lighting poses a significant challenge. Thanks to a CTI project, the micro- and nanotechnology R&D centre CSEM and Sefar AG (both from Switzerland) have succeeded in designing a promising state-of-the-art way of achieving this aim. This technology is reported to open up new opportunities for applications in residential, professional lighting segments, as well as consumer electronics.
LASSIE-FP7 (Large Area Solid State Intelligent Efficient Luminaires), a European project, is pushing back the boundaries in the lighting industry. The module developed by the consortium led by CSEM, a Swiss micro- and nanotechnology research institute, is reported to strengthen the range of tools available to the European lighting industry and offers an innovative solution providing exceptional light quality and colour rendering that stands the test of time.
