Since 2003 several large electronic companies began producing the latest flat-screen display technology for laptops, cell phones, digital cameras, and other uses that are made of nanostructured polymer films. These special displays are known as OLEDs, or organic light-emitting diodes.
These ultrathin displays are manufactured by sandwiching extremely thin (often nano-sized) layers of organic polymer light-emitting materials between electrodes. The images are bright and viewable at wide-angles. The displays are smaller and lighter-weight than traditional LCD displays—meaning they are ideally suited to mobile electronics, such as digital cameras, cellular phones, and handheld computers. Among OLED screen advantages are brighter images, lighter weight, less power consumption, and wider viewing angles.
