Paper Abstract

In this manuscript, we report on the successful fabrication of high performance polymer light emitting diodes (PLEDs) using a low temperature, plastic lamination process. Blue- and red-emitting PLEDs were fabricated by laminating different luminescent polymers and organic compounds together to form the active media. This unique approach eliminates the issue of organic solvent compatibility with the organic layers for fabricating multi-layer PLEDs. In addition, a template activated surface process (TAS) has been successfully applied to generate an optimum interface for the low temperature lamination process. The atomic force microscopy analysis reveals a distinct difference in the surfaces created by the TAS and the spin-coating process. This observation coupled with the device data confirms the importance of the activated interface in the lamination process.
