Pyramid scheme for brighter organic LEDs
The most common kind of light bulb in the United States—the incandescent—is only about 5 percent efficient. The phosphorescent organic light-emitting diode, on the other hand, makes light out of 100 percent ...
Liquid-OLED Offers More Light-Emitting Possibilities
Nanostructures half a DNA strand-wide show promise for efficient LEDs
Nanostructures half the breadth of a DNA strand could improve the efficiency of light emitting diodes (LEDs), especially in the "green gap," a portion of the spectrum where LED efficiency plunges, simulations ...

'Spintronic' LED invented: New technology promises brighter TV, computer displays
University of Utah physicists invented a new "spintronic" organic light-emitting diode or OLED that promises to be brighter, cheaper and more environmentally friendly than the kinds of LEDs now used in television ...
Manufacturing method paves way for commercially viable quantum dot-based LEDs
University of Florida researchers may help resolve the public debate over America's future light source of choice: Edison's incandescent bulb or the more energy efficient compact fluorescent lamp. It could be neither.
NREL Finds a Way to Give LEDs the Green Light
(PhysOrg.com) -- Light bulbs that last 100 years and fill rooms with brilliant ambiance may become a reality sooner rather than later, thanks to a National Renewable Energy Laboratory discovery.
