Light-emitting Electrochemical Cell

Light-emitting Electrochemical Cell

Light-emitting Electrochemical Cell (LEEC) derives from acquired alien technology from UFO crash landings.  Wait, no, it’s a breakthrough approach to cheap lighting devices from the Basel University.

The present invention relates to a light-emitting electrochemical cell comprising at least two electrodes, and an electroluminescent material arranged between said two electrodes, wherein the electroluminescent material comprises a charged metal complex. It also relates to a method for manufacturing light-emitting electrochemical cells, and to substances which may be used as electroluminescent substances.

If that’s all jibberish to you that’s ok.  Basically it means a promise of cheaper lights and more efficient energy use in the future, for which they should have our full support.  [OLED-Display]
