Flex-o-Fab, a major collaborative project run by Holst Centre, has successfully completed its goals in the development of flexible organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). Building on existing technologies and innovating new processes, the project's partners can be congratulated on many achievements – including indium-free electrodes and brighter OLEDs. Overall, the project has strengthened Europe's leading position in the lighting industry by taking flexible OLEDs a giant step closer to commercial reality.
More robust than their rigid, glass-based counterparts, flexible OLEDs open up a whole new field of lighting systems. Thin, lightweight, bendable and transparent, they can be embedded into all kinds of everyday objects – imagination is the only limit to their potential applications. And with the completion of the European funded Flex-o-Fab project in 2015, such applications are now much closer to commercial reality.
