In this paper we fabricated a panel consisting of an array of organic TFTs (OTFT) and organic LEDs (OLED) in order to demonstrate the possible application of OTFTs to flexible active matrix OLED (AMOLED). The panel was composed of 64×64 pixels on 4 inch size PET substrate in which each pixel had one OTFT integrated with one green OLED. The panel successfully demonstrated to display some letters and pictures by emitting green light with luminance of 20 cd/m2 at 6 V, which was controlled by the gate voltage of OTFT. In addition we also developed fabrication processes for pentacene TFT with PVP gate on PET substrate. The OTFTs produced the maximum mobility of 1.2 cm2/V•sec and on/off current ratio of 2×106.
The flexible display and the application of Roll-To-Roll process is difficult because high temperature process of a-Si;H TFT and poly-Si TFT limited the use of plastic substrate. We proposed AMOLED using Pentacene TFT (OTFT) to fabricate flexible display. The first stage for OTFT application to OLED, we analyzed OTFT as driving device of OLED. The process performed on glass and plastic (PET) substrate that is coated ITO and PVP is used for gate insulator. The field effect mobility of the fabricated OTFT is 0.1~0.3cm2/V•sec and Ion/Ioff current ratio is 103~105. OLED is fabricated with two stories structure of TPD and Alq3, and we can observe the light at 5V by the naked eye. The wavelength of observed lights is 530nm ~550nm. We can confirm the driving of OLED due to OTFT using Test panel and observe OLED control by gate voltage of OTFT. Also, we verify designed structure and process, and make a demonstration fabricating 64 by 64 backplane based on Test panel.
