Diagram of an active-matrix OLED display

AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode) displays are used for mobile phones, televisions and other electronic devices. An AMOLED display uses an active matrix of organic light-emitting diodes (OLED) that emit light when an electrical signal is present. OLEDs work just like a regular LED except it is only a few nanometers[a] thick. Unlike LCDs, AMOLEDs do not require backlighting.[1]
