Enhancing Organic LED Performance with Multiphysics Simulation

Although it’s been nearly a century and a half since Thomas Edison flipped a switch to turn on the world’s first practical light bulb, the search for better light sources continues unabated. Many other lighting technologies have been developed since that day in 1879, bringing features such as brightness, color quality, dimming capability, and low life-cycle costs. Organic LEDs, or OLEDs, are attracting strong interest because they can be used in lightweight, paper-thin, light-emitting panels in a variety of shapes and sizes. They can be used to create flexible or bendable lighting devices applied to a flat or curved surface area to build parts such as car tail lights and even “lighting flowers”. But OLEDs aren’t nearly as bright or as energy-efficient as their inorganic cousins, LEDs, and so researchers at Konica Minolta, Inc. are racing to develop designs to meet growing ...
