  • Patent number: 10374017
    Abstract: Arrangements of pixel components that allow for full-color devices, while using emissive devices that use blue color altering layers in conjunction with blue emissive regions, that emit at not more than two colors, and/or that use limited number of color altering layers, are provided. Devices disclosed herein also may be achieved using simplified fabrication techniques compared to conventional side-by-side arrangements, because fewer masking steps may be required.

  • Publication number: 20190181370
    Abstract: Embodiments of the disclosed subject matter provide a device having a substrate, at least one organic light-emitting layer disposed over the substrate, and at least one down-conversion layer. The at least one down-conversion layer may generate the NIR emission by absorbing at least a portion of the light emitted by the at least one organic light emitting layer, and re-emitting light at a longer NIR wavelength or range of wavelengths having a peak NIR emission that may be greater than 700 nm, greater than 750 nm, or greater than 800 nm. An out-of-plane optical density of the at least one down-conversion layer may be less than 0.1 for all wavelengths of light in a range from 400 nm to 600 nm.
