Conduction in aluminum(III) 8-hydroxyquinoline (Alq3) was modeled based on trap-charge limited conduction of electrons in the bulk. The evolution of a narrow Gaussian distribution of localized trap states below the lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) of Alq3, lying against a natural exponential background, was used to explain changes in the current-voltage characteristic and external quantum efficiency with time observed by many researchers for organic light-emitting diodes. Based on the change of the shape of the J-V curve, the depth of the electron trap states that were formed during aging was about 0.25 eV below the LUMO of Alq3. An increase in drive voltage and decrease in efficiency is predicted with aging by this model for current densities in a reasonable range, assuming that the evolved trap states are non-emissive and also non-quenching. The products of chemical aging can account for the generation of traps at the observed depth.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
