Daniel Black Seminar Date: April 1, 2011 Title: Attacking Problems with Organic Light-Emitting Diodes (OLEDS) Abstract: Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDS) have many advantages over conventional devices, such as contrast and brightness, fast response times, low weight, and low power consumption. OLEDs also have the potential to be fabricated on large area substrates and have a wide range of color choices. Even with these advantages, problems with OLEDs still exist, such as the fact that they lack stability of organic light emitting material and high efficiency on both rigid and flexible materials. Newly synthesized organic light emitting molecules hope to increase stability of OLEDs such as those based on diphenylaminofluorenylstyrene emitting core groups. The most notable of these new emitting materials is 9-[4-(2-diphenylamino-9,9-diethylfluoren-7-ylethenyl)phenyl]-9-phenylfluorene which has been reported to have no change in the CIE (Commission Internationale d'Eclairage) coordinates (x= 0.15, y= 0.13) for

Unformatted text preview: doping concentrations up to 15%. Also new devices that use new host material such as indium-free transparent conducting oxides have been reported to increase efficiency of OLED devices. New techniques are also being developed to apply these OLEDs to flexible substrates using inkjet printers and thin film transistor arrays. These flexible substrates must have properties similar to glass, such as a smooth surface, transparency , thermal stability, solvent resistance, and low coefficient of thermal expansion (CLTE). The issues are not only being worked out in the area of academia but also by companies such as Eastman Kodak, Dow Chemical, DuPont, and Universal Display Technology. In order to move past these drawbacks, new and different approaches and solutions transcending disciplines in science and engineering will be required....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
