Paper Abstract

OLED technology has improved to the point where it is now possible to envision developing OLEDs as a low cost solid state light source. In order to realize this, significant advances have to be made in device efficiency, lifetime at high brightness, high throughput fabrication, and the generation of illumination quality white light. In this talk, a down conversion method of generating white light is demonstrated and shown to be capable of generating illumination quality white light over the full range of color temperatures required for lighting. It is also demonstrated that, due to the presence of light scattering, the down-conversion method can actually increase the overall device power efficiency.
