Organic light emitting displays (OLED) are beginning to be found in smartphones and in the next few years the technology will migrate to flat panel televisions. The commercialisation of OLED technology into low cost lighting will require further development of basic device performance and low cost manufacturing methods. In this talk the history of OLED technology and the developments that are being undertaken at the Technology Development Centre in Godmanchester will be presented. The particular focus will be on the application of OLED technology to lighting and the technical and commercial reasons why this technology could meet our future lighting needs.

Julian Carter received a BA degree in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge and a PhD in Microelectronics from the University of Southampton. Initially he worked on the development of processes for silicon based devices but since 1996 has been involved in the development of polymer electroluminescent devices. He is currently Director of New Technology and working to commercialise low cost manufacturing processes for lighting and display products. He has authored or co-authored 30 papers and filed more than 40 patents.

The talk should last for around an hour followed by a look at the cleanrooms from the viewing corridor. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available.

This talk is part of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (Cambridgeshire Area) series.
