Future of lighting: more energy-efficient and flexible

Posted: June 21, 2011

Advances in lighting technology that could dramatically save on energy use and costs for the nation’s homes and businesses is the focus of research by Arizona State University engineer Jian Li.

Li is an assistant professor of materials science and engineering in the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy, one of ASU’s Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. In his laboratory at the Flexible Display Center at ASU, he’s working to develop the next generation of high-efficiency organic light-emitting diode devices.

Success in that endeavor will help the country maintain a leading edge in energy innovation, pave the way for new manufacturing jobs and provide lighting devices in an array of flexible designs never before possible.

In a television interview, he explains the benefits of moving beyond standard conventional light-bulbs and adopting more energy-efficient devices.
