Universal Display Corporation, which is headquartered in Ewing, New Jersey USA, announced that the company was recognized by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for outstanding achievements in solid-state lighting throughout 2011. Universal Display received the award during ‘Transformations in Lighting,’ the DOE’s annual Solid-State Lighting R&D Workshop, held January 31- February 2, 2012 in Atlanta, GA. The company points out that this is the fifth consecutive year that it has received this DOE award.
This year’s award is for Universal Display’s demonstration of an all-phosphorescent OLED lighting system with greater than 55 lumen per Watt system efficacy in an under-cabinet application. The company asserts that the under-cabinet demonstration is only one of numerous lighting applications that can benefit from its white OLEDs, as a result of their energy-efficient and cool operation, their ultra-thin form factor, and their pleasing color emission.
