Organic LEDs

Organic LEDs are light emitting diodes (LEDs) that use polymers or small organic molecules as their optically active element. Development of organic LEDs is driven in particular by its potential as a display technology. Organic LEDs can be fabricated on flexible substrates, unlike their rigid inorganic counterparts.

    Efficient ultra-broadband emitter is realized by using multi-Ln-doped Cs2Ag(In/Bi)Cl6 lead-free double perovskite (DP) coupled with “DPs-in-glass composite” (DiG) structure. The synergy of self-trapped exciton together with the energy transition induces this ultra-broadband emission emerge.

    Low stability of perovskite light-emitting diodes (PeLEDs) is the biggest obstacle to the commercialization of PeLED displays. Here, we cover the current status and challenges in analysing and improving the stability of PeLEDs and suggest some advice that will benefit the community to boost the operational lifetime of PeLEDs.
