Researchers at Arizona State University have developed an improved device design for OLED manufacturing. A new structure constituting a particular integrated optical microcavity and other components allow these OLEDs to more efficiently emit light. This results in a brighter OLED at power consumption levels similar to traditional OLEDs. This technology can help create more attractive displays for televisions and mobile devices. It can also help advance the fledgling market for solid state lighting solutions.
