Universal Display Corporation of Ewing, New Jersey USA, announced a collaboration and evaluation agreement with Osram, a leading lighting manufacturer. Under the agreement, Osram will begin sampling Universal Display’s proprietary PHOLED™ phosphorescent OLED materials for solid-state lighting applications.
OLED lighting offers an ultrathin form factor and can be made in almost any shape. OLEDs can also be transparent and can emit light from both sides of the device. These features can enable a world of new design possibilities for lighting. Other advantages of OLED lighting include: easy to control, lower operating temperatures, low drive voltage, instant “ON”, dimmable without flicker, no glare, no noise, and low UV output.
“We are pleased to be working with OSRAM, a global leader in lighting,” said Steven V. Abramson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Universal Display. “Efficacy and color quality are key metrics in lighting. Universal Display’s proprietary PHOLED technology offers superior efficiency compared to fluorescent OLED technology, which is a critical feature for energy-efficient lighting. We are delighted to be collaborating with OSRAM to help advance the promising future of OLED lighting into the automotive, residential and commercial markets.”
