“Pixelligent has further demonstrated its leadership in the OLED Lighting industry with its selection by the Department of Energy for this Phase-II award. This grant will allow Pixelligent to accelerate the development of next-generation materials that are essential to bring OLED Lighting to consumers at competitive prices,” said Craig Bandes, President & CEO of Pixelligent Technologies. “We are excited to partner again with OLEDWorks to further develop and optimize our advanced light extraction materials and commercialize this technology,” added Gregory Cooper PhD, Founder & CTO of Pixelligent Technologies.
The goal of this project is to continue development of a novel light extraction design that improves light extraction efficiency of OLED lighting devices by more than 200%. The structure achieves these benefits without negatively impacting the device voltage, efficiency or angular color temperature. In addition, these materials will be fully compatible with OLED device manufacturing processes and operating conditions.
