DOE discusses LED and OLED R&D challenges

The US Department of Energy is supporting R&D efforts to realize solid state lighting (SSL) using both LEDs and OLEDs through their DOE SSL R&D program: the Multi-Year Program Plan. Now DOE recently published to separate videos with experts’ views on the matter. I always find it very beneficial to have the both technologies – LEDs and OLEDs – very close together – be it in DOE workshops or now in this digital format – because it allows to interact directly between the different technology camps. In the end, both system have in common that their are high efficiency, environmentally friendly concepts that should find highest market acceptance/share at the earliest possible time.
