Organic Light-Emitting Diodes (OLEDs) with Polarised Emission

  • E. Scheler
  • P. StrohrieglEmail author
Part of the Springer Series in Materials Science book series (SSMATERIALS, volume 169)


In this chapter the use of reactive mesogens in polarized organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) is described. The first part also serves as an introduction to the basic principles of OLEDs, which have attracted enormous interest since 1986 when Tang and van Slyke described the first thin layer OLED with high brightness and a low operating voltage.
