Formatted abstract
A study has reported on p-channel gate controlled light emitting diodes (LED) fabricated by spin casting an electroluminescent polymer onto high dielectric constant polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) with Au as the source for hole injection into the channel and Ca as the source for electrons. The study also analyzed light emission in a transistor-like configuration using a spin cast electroluminescent polymer and a bilayer of high materials (PVDF on silicon nitride) as the gate dielectric. The transistor exhibited excellent p-type electrical characteristics with a mobility of 7.4 × 10-5 cm2 V-1s-1 and current on/off ratio of 10 3. The study showed that light emission was visible with brightness exceeding 310cd m-2 at controlled quantum efficiency of 0.5%. The gate controlled bright light emission also suggests novel applications such as simplified pixels in a flat panel display and electrically driven organic lasers.
