Workshop: What OLED Holds for the Future of Lighting
OLED as a light source possesses numerous advantages that can contribute to the movement towards human-centric lighting. Some of the better known OLED characteristics include low glare, diffused shadows, low heat emission, etc. In addition to these factors, several tests have revealed that using OLEDs can reduce the level of optical damage normally caused by conventional light sources. With these benefits in mind, constant efforts are being made to facilitate the expansion of OLED light into the mass market. Most notably, LG Display has invested in a Gen 5 production line and is currently gearing up for mass production in 2018. The new production will include the long awaited flexible OLED light panels.
