An ORGANIC LED, you say? Well, before you get all excited and it's cool generic viagra overnight imagine a television pulsating with the biorhythms of millions of bacteria enslaved to do your bidding, it's not what you might think.
In fact, you might already know about OLEDs, as we've talked about them in the past, but only recently have they come into production. What makes OLEDs so great is that they have faster response times than LCD, they can achieve true blacks, and can be viewed at nearly any angle. This all comes, however, at a significant increase in cost. However, Physorg
reports that that may not be the thegracedarlinghotel.com.au
case for much longer. Researchers at Technische Universität Braunschweig in Germany have used tungsten oxide as an anode in their display to create a much more efficient device. Their simple design requires only 2 organic layers as opposed to many more used in current products, making the display thinner, more flexible, and much more energy efficient. This is impressive, as OLED displays were already more efficient than LCD and plasma displays.
This breakthrough means that OLEDs will hopefully soon be more affordable more quickly than the technology/price curve would normally dictate, though there are still concerns with low life-hours of the screen (currently about 20,000 hours) due to the organic material decomposing.
