Download the Application Note: Multi-technique surface characterization of organic LED material

An organic LED (OLED) consists of a high-brightness, light-emitting material with a low turn-on voltage for improved battery life. Understanding these materials requires a thorough analysis of its electronic structure. Thermo Scientific X-ray photoelectron spectrometers combine several surface analysis techniques in one instrument, enabling in-depth OLED research.

Download the application note to learn how:

  • XPS provides information about surface contamination and film purity
  • REELS investigates the electronic structure
  • UPS provides information about the valence energy levels
  • Taken together REELS and UPS create an energy level diagram of an organic thin-film material
