Research Highlights: White Light-Emitting Electrochemical Cell
Aug 29, 2011 Joint efforts of the research team from Umea University, Sweden and Merck KGaA, Germany has resulted in the development of a novel light-emitting electrochemical cell (LEC) that has air-stable electrodes and a solution-processed single-layer active material that emits warm-white light (CIE coordinates = (0.39, 0.43); color rendering index =83) with significant brightness (B) at a low voltage.
It is reported in this article, published in the ASAP section of ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, that the carefully tuned trichromatic device exhibits a short turn-on time (5 s to B > 100 cd/m2), high efficiency (3.1 cd/A at B = 240 cd/m2) and good operational stability (17 h at B > 100 cd/m2). The researchers also describe fabrication of a blue LEC with a highly respectable set of device properties in the form of a turn-on time of 5 s, an efficiency of 3.6 lm/W and 5.6 cd/A, and an uninterrupted operational lifetime of 25 h.
It is noted that a path for future performance improvement of white LEC have been devised based on the analysis of data from trichromatic and monochromatic devices as well as from the constituent fluorescent CPs.
