Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) are now entering mainstream display markets and are also being explored for next-generation lighting applications. In both types of applications, high external quantum efficiency (EQE) is of premium importance for both low power consumption and long lifetime. It is well known that one of the bottlenecks in achieving(More)
Developing the ability to 3D print various classes of materials possessing distinct properties could enable the freeform generation of active electronics in unique functional, interwoven architectures. Achieving seamless integration of diverse materials with 3D printing is a significant challenge that requires overcoming discrepancies in material properties(More)
Heteroleptic (C(∧)N)2Ir(acac) (C(∧)N = 5-MeCBbtp (5a); 4-BuCBbtp (5b); 5-BuCBbtp (5c); 5-(R)CBbtp = 2-(2'-benzothienyl)-5-(2-R-ortho-carboran-1-yl)-pyridinato-C(2),N, R = Me and n-Bu; 4-BuCBbtp = 2-(2'-benzothienyl)-4-(2-n-Bu-ortho-carboran-1-yl)-pyridinato-C(2),N, acac = acetylacetonate) complexes supported by o-carborane substituted C(∧)N-chelating ligand(More)
An industrial-grade polyethylene naphthalate (PEN) substrate is explored as a simple, cost-effective platform for high-efficiency organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). Its high refractive index, combined with the built-in scattering properties inherent to the industrial-grade version, allows for a significant enhancement in outcoupling without any extra(More)
Despite high internal quantum efficiencies, planar organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) typically suffer from limited outcoupling efficiencies. To improve this outcoupling efficiency, we have developed a new thin (∼2 μm) light scattering layer that employs air voids (low-index scattering centers) embedded in a high-index polyimide matrix to effectively(More)
Strategies to achieve efficient transparent organic light-emitting diodes (TrOLEDs) are presented. The emission zone position is carefully adjusted by monitoring the optical phase change upon reflection from the top electrode, which is significant when the thickness of the capping layer changes. With the proposed design strategy, external quantum efficiency(More)
We report on the characteristics of enhanced and balanced white-light emission from bi-directional organic light-emitting diodes (BiOLEDs) enabled by the introduction of micro-cavity effects. The insertion of an additional metal layer between the indium tin oxide anode and the hole transporting layer results in similar light output of our BiOLEDs in both(More)
Transparent display is one of the most promising concepts among the next generation information display devices. Nevertheless, conventional transparent displays have two inherent problems: low forward light efficiency due to the light being emitted also in a backward direction; and low legibility due to the visual interruption caused by the light coming(More)
A progress report on our search for radio-quiet gamma-ray pulsars in the EGRET database is presented. The search technique utilizes signi cant computational resources of the Center for advanced Computing Research at Caltech to compute Gigapoint power spectra for some of the brighter, unidenti ed EGRET gamma-ray sources which, like Geminga, may not be(More)
