Term (Index) Definition
PLED  Plastic Light Emitting Diode; same as OLED.
organic semiconductor  a class of solids displaying semiconductor properties based entirely on organic components; low-cost semiconductors formed as a thin film on any substrate (including flexible substrates); maintain fundamental characteristics even when significantly bent; by nature much more resistive (in the range of 1014 ohm-cm, i.e. almost insulators) than inorganic semiconductors; two key types of o.s.: (i)small-molecule o.s. and (ii)long-chain polymeric o.s.; o.s. have a potential of expanding applications of semiconductors into new areas, particularly in display technology (flexible displays).

Reference: See Semiconductor Notes for more information
OLED  Organic Light Emitting Diode; mechanism of light emission is different than in conventional LEDs; in OLEDs radiation is emitted as a result of electron-hole interactions in the thin-film organic semiconductor leading to the formation of exciton; de-excitation of excitons results in the release of energy in the form of the photon.
