Over in Europe, the race is on to establish the use of OLEDs for general illumination and the region is aiming to be the frontrunner in this field with its collaborative organic LEDs for ICT and lighting applications (OLLA) project. OLLA has 24 consortium partners from eight European countries, including ten industrial partners as well as seven universities and research institutions and its main aim is to develop a white light OLED tile of 15-by-15 centimeters by 2008. Additional targets set include high brightness (1000Cd/m2) and increased efficiency (50 lumens per watt) along with an extended lifespan (10,000 hours).

"Considering their numerous benefits and superior performance levels, solid-state lighting technology promises innovations in the application areas of decorative, signage and signaling, entertainment, display, as well as automotive lighting," says Meena. "Nevertheless, in ensuring its wider reach, solid-state lighting has to ensure its cost competitiveness in comparison to existing lighting technologies."
