This contest is fueled by the following news: When provided a supply of electricty, the organic light emitting diode will then emit a brilliant white light. In the journal Nature, the material in question can be printed in wafer thin sheets that might be able to transform walls, ceiling or even pieces of furniture into lights. The OLEDs do not heat up in the way that today's light bulbs do and are more energy efficient and last longer. In addition, they also produce light that is more akin to natural light. Professor Mark Thompson of the University of Southern California, one of the authors of the paper in Journal, believes that this technology will provide products that are more efficient and have longer lifetimes.
