There are many advances being made in the field of displays, with companies looking at ways to create low-cost systems that can be recycled after use. LunaLEC, a 2012 spin-out from Lunavation AB, has developed prototypes for its Liquid Light polymer light-emitting electrochemical cells (LECs) (please see the video here).
Created by professors Nathaniel Robinson at Linköping University and Ludvig Edman at Umeå University, LECs are metal-free, flexible and printable light-emitting devices. LunaLEC patented the first all-organic LECs, taking advantage of the fact that in an LEC you can surprisingly use graphene as a cathode. LunaLEC earned honors at LOPEC 2013, where its LEC technology received the Investor Forum Award for Most Impactful Technology/Product, and the company is making progress.
Patric Stafshede, managing director for LunaLEC AB, noted that LunaLEC demonstrated proof-of-concept devices at LOPEC 2014, although it has not provided any customer specific prototy
