A few years ago, Researchers at Exeter developed a new material called GraphExeter, which is made from compressed ferric chloride molecules between two sheets of graphene. This material has interesting properties, and recently the researchers started to study it as an electrode material for electroluminescent devices.

The researchers now report that GraphExeter is indeed effective as such an electrode - performing better than pure graphene. In fact, they state that it is capable of high luminosity - brighter than pure graphene by almost 50%. It's not clear exactly if they used this electrode on an OLED or on an EL lighting panel, but these are certainly interesting results.

Graphene has many possible usages in both OLED lighting and display panels. To find out more about this new wonder material, check out our Graphene for the Display and Lighting market report.
