Alternative Current Electroluminescence and Flexible Light Emitting Devices

Abstract

Electroluminescence (EL): the light emission under an applied electrical potential is one of key light emitting techniques been applied over a vast range of applications. Alternative Current Electroluminescent (ACEL) is one of major light emitting technique discussed under EL. Even though it possesses some intrinsic advantages over Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) and Light Emitting Cell (LEC), it has not been thoroughly discussed like LEDs and most of the time has kept under the shadow of LED. On the other hand, flexible light emitting devices have become an emerging trend in the field as they are been widely applied in consumer electronics and wearable devices, where in ACEL technique can make a significant impact for its development. This review discusses the ACEL technique in detail covering different device architectures, materials and fabrication methods highlighting the use of electrospinning techniques. In the second part, the review will briefly summarize the research works in flexible light emitting field, covering both in optical and mechanical performances
