Improving LEDs

Organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) currently employed in portable displays such as cellular phone and digital music player displays are sensitive to air and moisture and are not very energy efficient. Inorganic solid state LEDs are less sensitive to environmental damage, but are not mechanically flexible and cannot be used in portable displays. This project will build LEDs using narrow band, efficient and wavelength tunable light emitting material for the fabrication of hybrid inorganic-organic LEDs. This would allow the manufacture of long-lived efficient LEDs on flexible substrates.
