Is the future of lighting in OLED?

IEC publishes Standard for new lighting technology

The lighting market has been concentrating on energy-efficient solutions for years. After lamps relying on light emitting diode (LED) technology, new solutions based on organic LED (OLED) are emerging. Relevant International Standards for these are being developed by IEC Subcommittee (SC) 34A: Lamps. One such Standard covers performance requirements for OLED panels for general lighting.

Lighting the road ahead

New technologies set fresh challenges for IEC TC 34

The lighting sector is experiencing a deep transformation across the world as new energy-efficient lighting technologies that first appeared a few years ago gain wide adoption. They are being adopted throughout the world as countries seek to control their energy consumption. IEC Technical Committee (TC) 34: Lamps and related equipment, and its Subcommittees (SCs), develop International Standards for electric light sources including energy-efficient lighting solutions.
