Beam-forming OLED with nanostructured fluorescence layer

Project description

Novel beamforming OLEDs for sensors

Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) that are well-known from smartphone and TV displays hold great promise as light sources for future integrated sensors. The EU-funded BEAMOLED project aims to develop OLEDs with directional emission (beamforming) for efficient sensors. The project will expand on the success of a previous EU-funded project that demonstrated an on-chip OLED light source used to switch smart surfaces. To achieve the desirable beam characteristics, the project will develop OLED devices on top of a nanostructured fluorescence waveguide layer and a spacer layer. OLEDs using beamforming technology will offer new possibilities to a wide range of applications in industrial sensing as well as in point-of-need sensing.
