PLEDs - THE TECHNOLOGY OF FUTURE
PLED is nothing but ‘Organic’ POLYMER LIGHT EMITTING DIODE. The researchers all over the world have already begun producing prototype displays on next generation devices which are brighter, lighter, use less power and last longer. The thickness of these PLEDs are just the thickness of paper.
This technology revolutionized in early 1990’s when they found the layer of PLED material when sandwiched between two electrodes started emitting light as a function of the electrolytic operations. Since the emitted light was from the surface it did not require any additional elements such as backlights, filters and polarisers which makes them bit lighter compared to other LCDs .
This Technology is energy efficient and would have clearer displays with viewing angles of 180 degrees. The construction is simpler , cheaper , robust display modules and faster response time allows color video pictures. PLEDs versatility could be used to create sheets of paper-thin lighting that can be applied to whole wall surfaces. So the time is not far off when TV, computer and other electronic screens will become so thin and flexible we would be even able to fold them and use them stuck to any surfaces.
