LED news and insight from our technology editor Steve Bush, who has been messing with LED lighting for more years than he would care to remember.

Project TOPLESS lights up OLED desk lamp

“The OLED lamps have five 2″ P-OLED panels, each requiring 0.7W (the total power input is 3.5Watts – 5V dc @ 0.7amps),” it writes.

“TOPLESS (Thin Organic Polymeric Light Emitting Semi-conductor Surfaces) objectives include an efficacy of 20Lm/w, color temperature suitable for general white light applications and large single-pixel devices. TOPLESS will run till February 2010.”

Apparently they hope to have a pre-production OLED lighting line in the UK by the end of 2011. See also: An interview with the Project Mansager for TOPLESS

    This is the future of lighting, especially if efficiency of 50Lm/W can be achieved.
