Silva, G., Vilasboas, I., Oliveira, M., Gonçalves, C. et al., "Organic Light-Emitting Diode: Prospects for Automotive Area," SAE Technical Paper 2016-36-0195, 2016, doi:10.4271/2016-36-0195.
Organic light-emitting diode (OLED) is a promising technology that presents many important features to improve the efficiency of lighting and screen applications. The automotive lighting application requirements are prompting lots of research related to this solid-state light source. The aim of this study is to understand the OLED technology and discuss its main characteristics, such as luminance, efficiency, lifetime, emitting color, and organic materials. Also, to investigate the opportunities and requirements to be applied in vehicle exterior lighting.
