Light Emitting Transistors: A New Route to Digital Displays and Lasers (2016–2019)
Organic light emitting field effect transistors are an emerging class of integrated optoelectronic device with dual functionalities, i.e., a light emitting and a switch transistor in single device structure. The dual functioned devices provide a promising pathway to much more economical display technologies and tunable organic lasers. The principal goal of this Project is to develop a new route to achieve simplified display pixels and electrically pumped organic lasers by using organic light-emitting transistors platform with new organic chromophores. The proposed research is at the frontier of the multidisciplinary field of organic-inorganic opto-electronics and has the potential for impact across a broad range of science and technology.
