Osram, in partnership with BASF, has reached two major milestones in their development of OLED lighting.
- They've developed an OLED that's able to yield 60 lumens per watt (lm/W), a much greater efficiency than conventional bulbs.
- This new OLED meets the international Energy Star SSL Standard for color requirements, a first for this lighting technology.
Osram revealed an OLED capable of achieving 46 lm/W last spring, so this is a pretty quick advancement in efficiency. While even greater efficiencies for OLEDs have been met, so far the Energy Star standard has not. This new OLED is within the acceptable band for color coordinates defined by Energy Star and is able to retain its white color at different levels of intensity.
This all means that a super-efficient and consumer-ready OLED product is getting closer. Osram is continuing to work on the technology with hopes of producing color-appropriate, 100 lm/W light tiles in the near future.
