Philips Chemical Company and BASF have developed a prototype car roof panels combining solar cells with transparent OLED. During the day, the roof allows light from the outside, and at night, the panels become a source of light for car, using the stored energy throughout the day.

BASF and Philips han logrado un gran avance en el desarrollo de las aplicaciones en la tecnología OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) que permite su integración en el techo de los vehículos. Los OLED son transparentes cuando están apagados permitiendo una clara visión fuera del vehículo y promocionan luz hacia el interior cuando están encendidos. Este concepto de alumbrado a través de OLED para el techo de los coches es el resultado de una cooperación prolongada entre BASF y Philips en el desarrollo e investigación de los módulos OLED.

In addition to offering new possibilities of design, OLED lighting concept allows new approaches to automotive industry. The transparent OLED structure may also be combined with transparent solar cells.

Dr. Felix Görth, head of Business Development of OLED and Organic Photovoltaics at BASF, explained: "This combination allows the driver to enjoy a unique open-space feeling while it generates electricity during the day and pleasantly rewarded with warm light highly efficient and transparent OLED ".

For his part, Dr. Dietrich Bertram, General Manager of OLED Lighting at Philips, added: "This project provides impressive evidence of new possibilities with OLEDs, and illustrates the potential of Philips OLED technology to help create Lumiblade applications that improve the lives of people "

BASF and Philips have cooperated closely since 2006 in the OLED 2015 initiative promoted by the Ministry of Education and Research of the German Government (BMBF). BASF develops organic chemical materials such as dyes used in the development and manufacture of OLEDs Philips. Working together, the two partners put the innovative transparent OLED lighting on the roof of vehicles.

OLED - a revolution in lighting
OLED technology offers high energy efficiency, additional flexibility and new options it gives designers. The OLED light source has a thickness of 1.8 mm and can be transparent. The entire surface becomes the OLED light source, so it emits a soft light with less light than the focal shadows.

OLED 2015 Iniciativa del BMBF
El proyecto “TOPAS 2012” fue lanzado en enero de 2010, marcando la segunda fase de la iniciativa OLED 2015 del BMBF. “TOPAS” se refiere a “mil dispositivos orgánicos fosforescentes para aplicaciones en sistemas de iluminación”. En este proyecto, los socios del consorcio (incluyendo BASF y Philips) se centrarán en el desarrollo de materiales y componentes arquitectónicos innovadores así como nuevas maquinarias de producción de soluciones de iluminación utilizando la eficiente tecnología OLED.
