Light emitting Polymers, such as polyphenylene vinylene, polyaniline and polypyridine, are plastic molecules that give out light when a current is applied and were first discovered in the late 1980s in a Cambridge University laboratory. Since then they have found important use as the lumophor component of Organic Light Emitting Diodes, as developed by Cambridge Display Technologies. Although the Polymeric OLEDs are running behind small molecule OLEDs in terms of development, significant progress is being made and there is much potential for growth due to the substantially lower costs and operating energy in comparison with other OLEDs/LEDs. These factors lead to applications in flat screen displays (as an alternative to plasma/LCD), mobile phone and digital camera displays and the potential for many, many more.
