Abstract

Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLEDs) are a promising technology for lighting and display applications. Traditionally, OLEDs are manufactured using cost-intense conventional vacuum processing technology. Printing technologies have been projected as cost efficient alternative (Amruth et al. in Display and imaging, pp. 339–358, 2016 [1]). Recently inkjet printing has emerged as a leading technology for the deposition of organic semiconductor films in a wide range of the electronic applications. In this paper we discuss the formulation of light emitter ink and challenges in using inkjet printing of the light emitting layer for OLEDs.
