Area of Interest 6: Novel device structures for
improved performance and low

Practical OLED devices for general illumination applications must perform
extreme environments very different than those normally associated with
OLEDs such as display applications like cell phones and PDAs. For the
realization of the SSL market penetration sought, OLEDs must be developed
will perform at remarkable brightness levels for periods measured in tens
thousands of hours at extreme temperatures, with no degradation in luminous

performance. Thus, applied research directed at meeting these challenges
sought that will ultimately give rise to the OLED packages that are as
and long lived as required for general illumination applications. Applied
research in this area may include novel materials and hosts that help to
achieve these goals but may also include innovations associated with
materials systems and structures.

As the internal efficiency and stability of new OLED materials improves,
researchers will need to focus their attention on novel device
This is especially important for maximizing light extraction (as above) but
be just as important for manufacturing cost reductions or for adding
functionality such as pixilation or variable light attenuation. Equally
important and perhaps nearer term are new ideas in the area of white OLEDs
improve the color stability over time and operating conditions. Concepts
including RGB blends, monomer-excimer complexes, separate RGB emissive
and pixilation need to be explored to determine the optimal approach to
OLED-based white light generation.

This Area of Interest is restricted to advancement of completely novel
materials systems such as hybrid inorganic-organic ones and/or novel
architectures such as multiple emissive layers or resonant cavity
Proposals that seek to advance IQE of known materials systems should be
submitted to Area of Interest 4, provided that the performance criteria
specified are met. Likewise, proposals that promise to increase the EQE of

known architectures and structures should be submitted to that Area of
5 provided the respective performance criteria for that area are satisfied.
