WAC continues to push boundaries with two new Organic LED lights, creating the perfect marriage between eco-friendly nanotechnology + modern aesthetics.
What are OLEDs
- OLEDs (Organic Light Emitting Diodes) were discovered in 1979. They are solid-state devices composed of thin films of organic molecules (carbon based) that create light with the application of electricity.
- OLEDs can provide brighter, crisper displays on electronic devices and use less power than light-emitting diodes (LEDs) based liquid crystal displays (LCDs) used today.
OLED technology offers several advantages over conventional lighting. First is its slimness. The thickness of the whole OLED panel for lighting applications will reach just 1mm in the near future. Such a characteristic may allow OLED lighting to be placed directly on ceilings rather than using fixtures that are suspended from them. In addition, OLEDs flexibility may allow lighting fixtures to operate effectively when designed for spaces with limited conditions. The natural transparency of organic materials makes the OLED as sheer as standard glass or plastic when the power is turned off. Imagine a window or wallpaper that lights up during night time. Roll-to-roll sheets of paper-thin flexible, transparent plastic provide an entirely new way to illuminate a home or business.
- Exceptionally thin profile: 5 mm thick. This could allow OLED lighting to be placed directly on ceilings rather than using fixtures that are suspended from them.
- Transparency: The natural transparency of organic materials makes the OLED as sheer as standard glass when it is turned off. Imagine a window or wallpaper that lights up during the nighttime.

OLED vs. LED
- Point light source
- Has glare eff ects, needs light distribution elements
- Made of synthetic materials
- Needs heat sink
- Regular solvent for further treatment
- Flat light source
- No glare effect
- Made of organic material, soluble when disposed
- More efficient heat dissipation, no need for heat sink
- Able to form transparent flat light panel
- Able to form on flexible substrate
