OLED Light Glossary
Electrode: a conductor through which electricity enters or leaves an object, substance, or region. In the OLED light, this takes place when a light switch is turned on, allowing to create electroluminescence.
Electroluminescence: luminescence (visual light emission) produced by electrical stimulation.
Homogeneous: In OLED lighting, this means that there are no visual differences in light throughout the OLED light. The entire light produces the same brightness and color across its surface without localized hotspots, creating a crisp and clear light.
Human-centric OLED Lighting
Human-centric: Focusing on human beings and the advancements that directly correlate to their well-being.
Human-centric: The measurement of light emission from a source per second.
OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode)
OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode): thin carbon-based organic layers sandwiched between two electrodes. When DC current is applied, holes and electrons are injected from the anode and cathode into the organic layers. This creates electroluminescence.
Substrate: base material or device on which an OLED light is built on. Glass is a common substrate for optics. Different substrates can yield different looks, colors, and designs.
Wavelength: the distance between two peaks of a light wave. Different wavelengths of light appear to our eyes as different colors. Shorter wavelengths appear blue in nature while longer wavelengths appear red in nature.
