Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLEDs)
Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLEDs) are sub-micrometric devices formed by multi-stacked materials that have reached the appropriate Technological Readiness Level to be present in displays. Intense research has permitted the construction of diodes with long lifetimes, multi-colour emission and size variety.

While most conventional electronics are based on silicon transistors, there are other approaches being developed that seek to enable truly flexible components. At FlexEnable we believe the only way you can make truly flexible electronics is to start with truly flexible materials, so we use plastics (also referred to as organic materials) instead of ceramics to make our transistors.

Electronic waste (e-waste) is a fast growing problem. The UN estimates between 20-50 million tons of electronic waste is discarded every year, with only 12.5% of this being recycled. This leaves a colossal amount of e-waste sitting in landfill or improperly disposed of, which in turn leads to toxic materials leaching into the soil and water supply.
