The article states that researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, working with the University of Tennessee, are developing electrodes composed of carbon nanotubes and magnetic nanowires to enhance the light emission from polymer-based organic LEDs. Using carbon nanotubes improved the electroluminescence efficiency of polymer LEDs by a factor of four while reducing the energy required to operate them.
