  • global positioning satellite (GPS);
  • organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs)


The basic structure of organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) was reported by Ching W. Tang and Steven Van Slyke at Eastman Kodak in 1987. This was followed by the widescale development of many other OLED - based products, including cellular phones, audioplayers, portable multimedia players, and portable global positioning satellite (GPS) devices, which now provide high-resolution displays in brilliant, multitone colors. Larger-display products have also been introduced on the market prototypes have also been developed. The main objective of this book is to explain the basics and application of this promising technology from various perspectives.
