Definition of OLED in English:



  • A light-emitting diode containing thin flexible sheets of an organic electroluminescent material, used for visual displays.

    ‘because OLEDs emit light, they consume significantly less power’
    • ‘We already have OLED displays in our small, handheld devices but OLED technology has so much potential that it could change the entire display industry over the next few years.’
    • ‘OLED TVs will be expensive when they first come out just like when the first plasma TV came out.’
    • ‘If you've been holding out, waiting for one of those shiny new OLED TVs, your patience is about to be rewarded.’
    • ‘At the moment we see a large demand for organic light-emitting diode (OLED) based microdisplays, suggesting a new world of applications.’
    • ‘The main advantage of OLED over LCD it that in an OLED display, each pixel produces its own light.’
    • ‘As amazing as OLED is, no technology is perfect.’
    • ‘Unlike conventional liquid crystal displays, OLED displays do not require a backlight.’
    • ‘OLED has no inherent limitations to size and resolutions either, so it can even help enable gigantic living room TVs.’
    • ‘OLED displays are thinner, lighter, consume less power and are visible over wider angles than LCDs.’
    • ‘Each OLED is actually a sandwich of several different layers of materials.’
    • ‘The color of light produced by an OLED depends on the material used in the emissive layer.’
    • ‘TV's measuring 1mm thick are really the realm of OLED technology.’
