    In-Plane Electroluminescent Technology Could Improve LEDs for Displays and Wearables

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    Luminescence technology developed at Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST), using an in-plane electric field generated in parallel to the light-emitting layer of an LED, could help improve the efficiency of light-emitting elements used in billboards and banners. According to the research team, the LEDs produced this way emit light in a more flexible, stable way than conventional LEDs.

    To transmit energy to their light-emitting layer, existing LEDs use a coplanar structure that surrounds the light-emitting layer. This structure requires mechanically compliant electrodes with high transmittance, durability, and stable electrical conductivity. The light emitted from the light-emitting layer can get blocked by the…
