Thin film electroluminescent devices have experienced tremendous development over the last decades. Organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) have shown many advantages over their inorganic counterparts. Considered as the best display technology, OLEDs have been embedded in today’s smart phones, wearable devices, televisions, and explored for future display technologies. Despite these successes, the performance of organic/inorganic thin film electronic devices is still lag behind their inorganic crystalline counterparts in a number of aspects, and the potentials of organic and inorganic nanoparticle materials have not yet been fully realized.
In this multidisciplinary symposium, we plan to bring together the world-leading experts on organic/nanoparticle material based electronics. We intend this symposium to present and discuss the frontiers on the design, synthesis, processing, and integration of organic/nanoparticle materials for applications in displays, solid state lighting and other emerging thin film devices. Of particular interest are new material concepts, e.g. blue phosphorescent materials, thermally activated delayed fluorescence materials, quantum-dot and perovskite emissive materials, etc. Experimental and computational studies of bulk and interfacial properties at charge carrier transport, exciton dynamics, and device stability inside of thin-film electroluminescent devices will also be covered in this symposium.
