Mechanism of light emission


When electric current is run through a certain organic compound, the molecules of the compound situated between positive and negative electrodes are excited by the electric energy and emit light due to the energy difference when they return to their original state.
OLED makes use of this light-emitting phenomenon, which is called electroluminescence.
