Philips sees flexible 1x1 meter OLED lighting panels by 2018

Philips released a new roadmap for their OLED lighting products. The company decided to split its OLED offering into two families - one for decorative lighting and one for performance lighting. By 2018, Philips sees transparent, flexible 1x1 meter panels.

The performance family isn't reflective or transparent, and will remain rigid even in 2018. But Philips plans to reach 130 lm/W by 2018 (even more efficient than current LEDs), an intensity of over 5,000 cd/m2 and a CRI of over…

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
