A way to control the colour of OLEDs

Organic light-emitting diodes are used in smartphones and televisions to facilitate the high-contrast display of colours. Conjugated polymers are also often employed as organic semiconductors in such diodes. Researchers have found out how the spatial structure of these polymers can be used to control the colours of the OLEDs and help to increase the brightness of monitors.
