  • Patent number: 10767111
    Abstract: A method is disclosed for forming a blended phosphor composition. The method includes the steps of firing precursor compositions that include europium and nitrides of at least calcium, strontium and aluminum, in a refractory metal crucible and in the presence of a gas that precludes the formation of nitride compositions between the nitride starting materials and the refractory metal that forms the crucible. The resulting compositions can include phosphors that convert frequencies in the blue portion of the visible spectrum into frequencies in the red portion of the visible spectrum.

  • Patent number: 10700303
    Abstract: An organic light-emitting diode including an anode, a cathode, and a luminescent layered structure is provided. The luminescent layered structure is disposed between the anode and the cathode. The luminescent layered structure has a luminescent layer and a sensitizer layer. The luminescent layer has a luminescent-layer ground state, a luminescent-layer singlet state and a luminescent-layer triplet state, in which two times of the luminescent-layer triplet state is higher than the luminescent-layer singlet state. The sensitizer layer has a sensitizer-layer triplet state, which is between the luminescent-layer singlet state and the luminescent-layer triplet state. The molecules of the sensitizer layer at the sensitizer layer triplet layer transfers energy to the molecules of the luminescent layer at the luminescent-layer triplet state and triggers triplet-triplet annihilation upconversion in the luminescent layer such that the luminescent layer emits light of a first color.
