Abstract
The objective of the proposed work is to demonstrate p-OLED displays with high brightness and contrast ratio that can operate under severe temperature and humidity environments present in naval aircraft. The program will fabricate p-OLEDs using Maxdem's new RGB electroluminescent polymers. These polymers enable the device to operate at up to 50% higher temperature and possess lifetime up to be 30% greater than p-OLED devices based on current polymers. Maxdem also proposes to evaluate a facile and cost effective packaging technology as an alternative to the current hermetic sealing methods. This technology benefits from the high barrier property, temperature, and mechanical durability of nanocomposites. Synthesis of p-OLED polymers, a major activity of this program, will rely on Maxdem's expertise in this area. During this program, Maxdem has teamed with Professor Ghassan Jabbour, a world leader in OLED device science at the University of Arizona, who will use state-of-the-art equipment to fabricate and test devices. The combination of the superior p-OLED polymers and novel packaging materials proposed is expected to meet the demanding performance and cost requirements of next generation Naval aircraft displays. The combined technical expertise at Maxdem and ASU is expected to yield a highly successful program.
