Title: Spray deposition of organic electroluminescent coatings for application in flexible light emitting devices
Keywords: spray deposition; organic coatings; flexible displays; electroluminescence, thin films.
Abstract: Organic electroluminescent (EL) films of tris(8-hy-droxyquinolinato)aluminum (Alq3) mixed with polystyrene (PS) binder were produced by spray deposition. The influence of the substrate temperature on the layer’s morphology and uniformity was investigated. The deposition conditions were optimized and simple flexible light-emitting devices, consisting of indium-tin oxide/Alq3:PS/aluminum were fabricated on polyethylene terephthalate (PET) foil to demonstrate the advantages of the sprayed organic coatings. Same structure was produced by thermal evaporation of Alq3 film as a reference. The influence of the deposition method on the film roughness and contact resistance at the electrode interfaces for both types of structures was estimated. The results were related to the devices’ efficiency. It was found that the samples with sprayed films turn on at 4V, which is 2 V lower in comparison to the device with thermal evaporated Alq3.
