  7. Advanced Light Extraction Material for OLED Lighting

    SBC: Pixelligent Technologies, LLC            Topic: 13c

    One of the major hurdles to the commercialization of OLED lighting technology is its low light extraction efficiency when compared to its inorganic LEDs. Currently only 20 30% of the light produced by the OLED can be extracted. In order to be considered as a commercially viable option, OLED lighting efficacy has to improve dramatically. The mismatch between the refractive indices among the activ ...
