High-Performance Thin Film Encapsulation for the Application of White Organic Light-Emitting Diodes


Article Preview

Color conversion method has been used to fabricate chromatic-stability white organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). Experimental results found little CIE coordinate migration while changing operation voltage from 5 V to 12 V. A simple thin-film encapsulation (TFE) structure has been developed through vacuum thermal deposition in combination with plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition. The luminance of the encapsulated white OLED remain unchanged during the test time. The novel approach is being expected to lower the cost and achieve high-performance TFE.
