a green OLED device

Devices which detect and control light such as charge-coupled image sensors, LED lamps, and superconducting photodetectors


  • Charge-coupled image sensors - or CCD sensors, a sensor which converts an optical image into an electronic signal by "shifting" the signals between stages within the device
  • Integrated optoelectronics - the use of both electronic and optical signals in circuits
  • LED lamps - a light-emitting diode lamp
  • Light emitting diodes - a light source that comes from semiconductors that release energy in the form of photons
  • Organic light emitting diodes - or OLED, an LED where the emissive electroluminescent layer is a film of organic compounds
  • Photoconducting devices - devices which become more electrically conductive due to the absorption of electromagnetic radiation
  • Photodiodes - a type of photodetector capable of converting light into either current or voltage
  • Phototransistors - a bipolar transistor in a transparent case, which have a higher responsivity to light relative to photodioges
  • Superconducting photodetectors - sensors of light that use superconductive materials
