Plextronics, Novaled Team Up
Novaled AG of Dresden, Germany, a maker of organic LEDs (OLED), and Plextronics Inc., a Pittsburgh-based manufacturer of conductive organic inks for printed lighting, solar and other electronics, announced today that they will jointly develop doped- and solution-processed organic materials for OLED applications. The companies will combine their technologies to develop an advanced solution-processible hole-injection layer (HIL) for use with solution-processed polymer and small-molecule emitters, as well as with vacuum-deposited small-molecule emitters. They aim to offer a solution-processed HIL with the same performance as a Novaled doped small-molecule HIL deposited in a vacuum process. The companies will market the Plexcore OC inks that incorporate Novaled dopant materials.
- The impurity added to a substance to produce desired properties in the substance.
- That branch of science involved in the study and utilization of the motion, emissions and behaviors of currents of electrical energy flowing through gases, vacuums, semiconductors and conductors, not to be confused with electrics, which deals primarily with the conduction of large currents of electricity through metals.
- A source of radiation.
- The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
- A material whose molecular structure consists of long chains made up by the repetition of many (usually thousands) of similar groups of atoms.
