How OLEDs work

This is a simple run down of the benefits of OLED over LCD and Plasma that ran on the Science Channel... I'm guessing sometime ago, since the creator of OLED, Kodak's Steven Van Slyke, describes the era of "42 inch OLEDs" as being five years away, and there are already comfortable prototypes at that dimension.

That all said, it's still a good overview of OLED aimed at the layman, and does a fine job of explaining how the technology works and how the energy crisis of the 70's lead to the high-def flatscreens of the double oughts.
