This is a photograph of an organic light-emitting diode (OLED). OLEDs are being used in the newest generation of television screens.
In this classroom activity, students learn about organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). During the activity students make OLEDs, learn how OLEDs work, and discover what devices currently use OLEDs. Students also learn about spin coating since a spin coater is used to create the OLEDs.
In this cart demo, visitors learn about organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). Prior to presenting this demo, an OLED should be made in a chemistry lab. This OLED is shown to visitors during the cart demo. During the demo, visitors learn how OLEDs work and what devices currently use OLEDs. Additionally, this activity includes a demonstration of spin coating, which is a process used to make OLEDs.
