polymer light-emitting diode

polymer light-emitting diode

[¦päl·ə·mər ‚līt·i‚mid·iŋ ′dī‚ōd]
(organic chemistry)
An organic polymeric material that emits light in response to the application of an electric field. It may be an organic semiconductor sandwiched between metals of high and low work functions or a heterostructure made of two polymers, which increases the likelihood of radiative electron-hole recombination because of the energy-band structure. Also known as light-emitting polymer; polyLED.

An iridium-complex-doped polymer light-emitting diode is the excitation source, which excites a layer of light-emitting polymer on the opposite side of the waveguide.
It has also collected paper publications on organic light-emitting diode (OLED), polymer light-emitting diode (PLED), thin-film transistor (TFT), emissive display, backlight, liquid crystal display (LCD), flexible display, 3D display, projection display, etc.
The new plasmonic material, can be applied to both polymer light-emitting diodes (PLEDs) and polymer solar cells (PSCs), with world-record high performance, through a simple and cheap process.
