Description

Since the phase-out of the light bulb, the lighting market has been taken over by light-emitting diodes (LEDs). In view of energy savings up to 90 percent and a continuous price drop, the fact that LEDs are to replace their predecessors is more of an evolution than a revolution. Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) even combine all the advantages offered by LEDs with additional new features that allow completely different uses of light. And, best of all, this technology can also be applied to solar cells. The video shows the production of organic solar cells and light-emitting diodes at the Light Technology Institute (LTI) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and explains the currently biggest challenges involved with the development of this technology. http://explore-house.eu/en/2015/03/18/organic-electronics-light-of-the-future/ We also produced a German version of the video: https://youtu.be/0SBejUIGFTE
