Ledon will not only produce OLED panels, but will also develop and manufacture complete OLED lighting solutions and concepts for large-scale OLED systems. Ledon will use the Fraunhofer's pilot line, to make OLED panels on 370x470 mm2 substrates with a cycle time of just three minutes. 

Back in January 2009 we have interviewed Prof. karl Leo from the Fruanhofer IPMS, and he explains their technology and aims.
