A novel composition for electron injection layers applicable in PLEDs.
Since charge injection from a metal electrode into light-emitting diodes (LEDs) remains a significant impediment to device performance, there is a need for improved electron injection layers in order to increase polymer LED (PLED) efficiency.
Researchers at the University of California, Santa Barbara have developed a novel composition for electron injection layers applicable in PLEDs. Electron injection layers of this composition can be deposited via solution methods without disturbing the underlying layer. Due to superior electron injection, PLEDs utilizing this technology are more efficient and perform up to three times better than LEDs with barium/aluminum cathodes.
