Novaled announces a new 15x15 OLED device that has a 30lm/W power efficiency and 1,000 cd/m2 brightness. The OLED white light has a CIE color coordinates in line with the DOE energy star specifications. The lifetime is quoted as 20,000 hours.

The panel thickness is less than 2mm, and the light is a very high color rendering index (CRI) of 90. The perception of this light is similar to sunlight or what is delivered by incandescent bulbs. The achieved color coordinates of (0.44, 0.41) are inside the US Department of Energy (DoE) quadrangles at Illuminant A and even meet the more restrictive 7step MacAdams Ellispis around Illuminant A.

Novaled calls this new technology 'liternity OLED', which they want to start commercializing. It will allow upscaling to very large sizes.
