"Let'make light: from Edison's bulb to OLEDs" webinar at 'Futuro Remoto", Città della Scienza, Naples (IT) (27/11/2021).
Starting from a common incandescent light bulb, we went through the fundamental steps that led to the development of increasingly efficient light sources. They are capable of emitting much more light and consuming less. This leads to the new generation of lamps: solid state lamps, LED (Light Emitting Diode) and OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode). Introducing the concept of critical raw material, it was explained why these materials are so important for sustainable development and why they are defined as critical by the European Community.
