Iodine in New Technologies


Modern technology is capable of transmitting more effective high resolution images, consuming less energy, and providing optimal results in comparison with the previous ones. The use of iodine allows much more efficient light and image transmission technologies, as OLED technology is capable of generating black color, not based on color mix, but just with its absence. At the same time, light could generate more flexible technologies, a future of fully flexible, portable, and larger screens, which may be easily transported folded or rolled.
