Scholarcy highlights

  • Organic electroluminescent devices are light-emitting diodes in which the active materials consist entirely of organic materials
  • The fabrication of a white light-emitting organic electroluminescent device made from vacuum-deposited organic thin films is reported
  • Over 2000 candelas per square meter, nearly as bright as a fluorescent lamp, was successfully obtained at low drive voltages such as 15 to 16 volts. The applications of such a device include paper-thin light sources, which are useful for places that require lightweight illumination devices, such as in aircraft and space shuttles
  • Other uses are a backlight for liquid crystal display as well as full color displays, achieved by combining the emitters with micropatterned color filters
