Philips Lumiblade Plus - the world's most efficient OLED lighting panel

Update: we got some new information regarding Philips and KM cooperation

Philips unveiled their latest OLED lighting panel, the Lumiblade Plus - which is the world's most efficient panel under production (45lm/w). Currently available in one size (Square Tall White - 7x7cm) the panel was developed by Konica Minolta and is produced by Philips, and features full phosphorescent organic materials. The panel is available for €120 (minimum quantity is 100 units though).

Technical details of this new panel:

  • Luminous efficacy: 45 lm/W
  • Thickness: 1.8 mm
  • Lifetime: 10,000 hours
  • Luminance: 1,000 cd/m²
  • Current/voltage: 71.5 mA / 3.6 V
  • Color coordinates (x; y): 0.45 ; 0.41
  • Color temperature: 2,800 K

We knew that Konica Minolta has an active OLED lighting program (using UDC's PHOLED technology) but this is the first time we hear of a collaboration between KM and Philips. Here are Konica Minolta's OLED lighting plans, as unveiled towards the end of 2009.
