Researchers Prof Paul Burn
Brief description This Fellowship aims to advance the science of ultrathin efficient lighting technologies based on low embedded energy organic light-emitting diodes (OLED). By creating innovative semiconductor materials and diode architectures that optimise each step in light generation—from charge injection, transport and capture to light emission—the project aims to deliver transformative OLED lighting that is more efficient than standard fluorescents by 50%. The intended outcomes of the project are design rules for OLED componentry, including thin, flexible architectures for deployment in a range of environments. The project would prototype the new technology at scale, demonstrating a large-area lighting module with power efficiency of 150 lm/W.
