Leds And OLEDS: The Light Of The Future Has Still A Lot Of Potential

LEDs still conquer the hearts of consumers in the storm. The advantage of the small lamps is clearly obvious. They are economical, light-strong, durable and allow a completely new light. The future clearly belongs to the LED lamp.

Concepts for future-oriented applications popping up increasingly, also all Start-Ups focus on the development of LED technology as per RELATIONSHIPSPLUS. Here, the small lights are far arrived at their limit. The following post we want to give a small view of the illumination by morning you on the way.

The Future Of The LED Lamp Is Promising

Today, LED bulbs provide completely new possibilities. This is mainly on the performance and the varied range of colours. Intelligent LED-lamps, such as hue, which Philips derive from one of the market leaders in this segment can be controlled with the Smartphone. To choose different color games are to bring variety in the living and working areas. Furthermore the Philips hue with help of an app (FOURSQUARE) can be programmed, that the light in the apartment on when entering this or the lamps start yellow flashing as soon as Borussia Dortmund has scored a goal. The range of applications is huge thanks to modern light sources with intelligent technologies, linking.

In The Future There Will Be Even More Efficient LED Lamps

Recent successes first obtained under laboratory conditions show that the development of energy-saving LED technology for lighting are not yet complete. The company specialized on LEDs Creecould according to own with only a Watt 303 lumen luminous flux produce. This corresponds to more luminous flux than a 25-watt could produce light bulb. The efficiency of this LED is impressive and shows what the future will bring. In comparison, available LED bulbs between 70 and 100 lumens per watt create so far in the trade. That is seen in the relationship still upgradable.There are also LEDs, from No. name manufacturers that make far fewer lumens per watt, but are still more energy efficient than compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs).

Dynamic Day Lighting

Philips offers an intelligent lighting system with the Healwell technology , which is able to mimic daylight almost perfectly. In the morning, the light is cool, as it becomes warmer and therefore friendly towards the evening. The dynamic daylight illumination is already used in hospitals and to speed up the healing process for patients. It’s just still be a matter of time before such intelligent systems use in the Office or even at home. Especially window-less rooms would benefit from the modern lighting.

Smart Home 2.0

The subject field “Control” assume this intelligent smart home systems, the first acceptable approaches. In particular technologies such as Wi-Fi and and Bluetooth here back into focus. as well as the associated aspect of the smart link. In the near future we will not only have significantly more efficient LED bulbs have, but also vacuum cleaning robot and co to call our own.So have companies such as Samsung, which provide a wide range of technical devices in principle to offer an interest in various combinations. So the South Koreans are, for example, LED lamps, which can be connected to vacuum cleaners and air conditioners and take different tasks depending on the daily situation. It is among other things the following example scenario: while Peter Meier leaves the apartment, the light automatically turns off and the vacuum cleaner robot begins its work, until Mr. Meier returns from his shopping. The LED is so smart integrated home system in future increasingly in modern.

OLED As A Support Of The LED

OLED lights are also very efficient and require less space than conventional LED. The LED are called the next step in the area of development technology. So far, there are still no base for OLED lighting. However Philips and LG also lamps with OLED technology’s, which are however still quite expensive. Philips uses, for example, four squares of OLED Lumiblade lamp. They reach 4 x 350 lumen and cost less than 1000 euros. LG offers a desk lamp with three curved OLED panels in the near future, which should be slightly cheaper and makes 350 lumen. Philips sees for OLED technology especially there potential, where conventional LED would fail. For example, OLEDs can evenly illuminate signs on the road due to their thin property and the generous distribution of light.So far, OLEDs make only 50 lumens per watt, so these are only suitable for certain applications and LEDs are still indispensable. Another problem of OLEDs is the relatively short lifespan compared to the LED.


Overall, there is very little that speaks against the use of LED lamps. The advantages are obvious on the hand, so that in the future also further developments are made. LEDs have a positive eco-balance due to the long life time. But yet the disposal is problematic. As well as energy saving light bulbs, LEDs do not belong in the household waste. Taking into account rising energy prices LEDs at home will increase more and more attractive. Large furniture stores like IKEA put entirely on the modern light source. Also candles with LED base experienced a little hype in the last year.They had even a match with burning candles, which are increasingly used for Christmas.
