Lighting In The Future

Lighting in the future, as far as fact is concerned, is heading in the same direction. Ten to 15 years from now incandescent bulbs, fluorescent tubes and CFLs are going to be lightings of the past because of rapid advances in the field of organic light emitting diodes, or OLEDs. These are electronic devices made by placing a series of organic thin films between two conductors that begin to emit a bright light when an electrical current is applied.

New printers use light-emitting sheets

Newly invented machines are now capable of printing "sheets" of light, which have found themselves in some business buildings in recent weeks. The light printers use eight-inch wide sheets of organic LEDs, or OLEDs, and cover them with a layer of metal foil. When electric currents run through the sheet, they produce a soft blue-white glow.

Seeing some new light things with OLED technology

OLEDs are beginning to be used in TVs and cell phone displays, and big names such as Siemens and Philips are throwing their weight behind the technology to make it a lighting source as well. The OLED printer was made by General Electric Co. on its sprawling research campus here in upstate New York. It's not far from where a GE physicist figured out a practical way to use tungsten metal as the filament in a regular light bulb. That's still used today, nearly a century later.
