Efficiency beyond spin-statistics in polymer-based hybrid LEDs
Organic LEDs with photonic structures incorporating zinc oxide and a polyfluorene derivative as cathode and emissive layers, respectively, lead to high efficiencies and electrically-driven lasing capabilities.
Dispersing nanostructured additives in common polymers makes these tough and versatile materials suitable for optical applications.
