Paper Abstract

We describe resonant infrared pulsed laser deposition (RIR-PLD) of cyclic olefin copolymer, a barrier and protective layer; for comparison, we describe RIR-PLD of polystyrene and poly(ethylene dioxythiophene) about which we already have significant knowledge. Film deposition based on resonant infrared laser ablation is a low-temperature process leading to evaporation and deposition of intact molecules. In this paper, we focus on deposition of this model barrier and protective material that is potentially useful in the fabrication of organic light emitting diodes. The films were characterized by scanning electron microscopy and Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy. We also compared the properties of films deposited by a free electron laser and a picosecond optical parametric oscillator.
