Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) Paint--LOMOX

oled_0.jpgOrganic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED) are affixed to the surface of the wall and can create various lighting effects.  The wall becomes a flat screen of light or can be programmed to display light patterns[1].  OLEDs are a multi-layered structure.  The base layer is typically the anode with an electricity-conducting layer of organic composite on top of the anode.  The next layer is an emissive layer that allows the electrons to move up to the final layer – the cathode.  This is the basis structure of OLEDs.  OLEDs would provide designers greater freedom in the interior of buildings and possibly on the exterior of buildings[2][3][4].  OLEDs are currently very expensive to produce and use a variety of metals in the layers.
