Engineering researchers at the University of Toronto say they've developed the world’s most efficient organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) on plastic.

It means an alternative to rigid glass, potentially allowing flexible displays at low cost. The team says its device is comparable with the best glass-based OLEDs, while providing all the benefits of plastic.

Most OLEDs are currently produced using heavy-metal doped glass in order to achieve high efficiency and brightness - but this makes them expensive to manufacture, heavy, rigid and fragile.
