Organic LEDs are being hailed by some observers as the future of flat-panel display technology.
Analysts at Stanford Resources project dramatic growth for the technology during the next few years, moving from $3 million in revenues this year to $717 million in 2005.
The light-emitting plastic displays offer the promise of lower weight, profile, power, and cost than conventional flat panel technology.
The displays recently got a boost when IBM narrowed its list of research candidates for flexible displays to OLED and electronic ink. A complete discussion of the emerging technology is posted at www.techweb.com.
