Leading OLED lighting companies attend OSC-09 to discuss the latest technology trends, device performance, manufacturing needs and lighting standards

Leading OLED Lighting Companies Gather at OSC-09

Cambridge, England | Posted on September 1st, 2009

Over the past 12 months there has been progress towards the commercialisation of OLED lighting technology. All the major lighting companies such as Philips Lighting, Osram, GE, Panasonic and Thorn Lighting are actively developing OLED lighting technology that is expected to be available commercially as early as 2010.

At the forthcoming Organic Semiconductor Conference (OSC-09), London Heathrow Marriott, UK, 29th-30th September 2009, cintelliq is delighted to have brought together the largest gathering of speakers who will share with delegates the latest developments. We are exceptionally please to have plenary speakers from two of the world's leading lighting companies who will share with delegates why OLED lighting is an important technology for the future lighting industry. From Philips Lighting UK, Mike Simpson, Technical Director, will give a presentation on OLEDs as a means to enhance design choice", and we are honoured to have Takuya Komoda, Research Director, Panasonic Electric Works who will discuss OLED trends in the development of high CRI OLEDs with high power efficiency.

For a wider discussion on OLED lighting we have speakers from Universal Display Corp who will talk on white PHOLED technology, Cambridge Display Technology will present progress on white light emitting polymers, Bardsley Consulting will provide an overview of OLED lighting developments in the USA, and asks the question "can OLED lighting be viably manufactured in either Europe or the USA?" The FP7 projects and Fast2Light will provide recent progress, and Thorn Lighting will look at solution-processible OLED lighting developments and outline their next development phase "TOPDRAWER."

While lighting for general illumination has gained much attention there is considerable interest in using OLED lighting to develop flexible phototherapy devices. To provide delegates with an insight into what is possible we have invited Ifor Samuel, St Andrews University, to present his work on the development of OLED technology as a wearable light source for skin cancer treatment.

The development of international standards is a clear signal that the technology is moving rapidly towards commercialisation. The organic electronics community is active in the development of standards, and we are pleased to Albert van Breeman, TNO, who will talk about the recent EU activities on progress towards the development and adoption of standardisation in organic and large area electronics.

Craig Cruickshank, CEO cintelliq, said "Our selection of speakers on OLED lighting technology represents the leading developers from Europe, the USA and the Far East and we are confident that delegates will gain substantial information and understanding of the current and future development of this exciting and dynamic sector of organic semiconductor technology."

Now in its 7th year, OSC-09 runs from 29 - 30 September 2009 at the London Heathrow Marriott Hotel, London, UK.

About cintelliq
cintelliq is an independent limited company which provides information services and strategic consultancy to the emerging organic semiconductor industry. cintelliq delivers analysis based on facts, not on opinion.

As basic research in organic semiconductors moves from research laboratories towards early commercialisation it is essential that any organisation with a vested interest in the technology has access to reliable industry information. This information must be of a quality, timeliness and depth to enable organisations to make informed decisions for successful commercialisation. cintelliq was established in 2002 in order to collect, analyse and disseminate this information.
