The European AEVIOM (Advanced Experimentally Validated OLED model) project, a 3-year collaboration between leading academic and industrial groups in Europe has concluded - and the researchers managed to develop a new technique that precisely calculates the color of light produced from OLED lighting panels.
This new technique could simplify and improve the OLED design process (currently manufacturers had to rely on trial and error to see the exact color produced in a new panel). The new software can also be used to optimize OLED panels and make them more efficient.
The researchers used computational algorithms that rely on repeated random sampling to obtain numerical results. They modeled the complex electronic processes in OLED panels - the injection of electrical charge, the creation and distribution of the excitons, and the creation from these of individual photons.
