Stacked inverted top-emitting white organic light-emitting diodes
MetadataShow full item record
The majority of research on Organic Light-Emitting Diodes (OLEDs) has focused on a top-cathode, conventional bottom-emitting architecture. Yet bottom-cathode, inverted top-emitting OLEDs offer some advantages from an applications point of view. In this thesis, the development of high performance green electroluminescent inverted top-emitting diodes is first presented. The challenges in producing an inverted structure are discussed and the advantages of high efficiency inverted top-emitting OLEDs are provided. Next, the transition to a stacked architecture with separate orange and blue emitting layers is demonstrated, allowing for white emission. The pros and cons of the existing device structure is described, with an eye to future developments and proposed follow-up research.
