Abstract

Anisotropic charge transport, or polarized photo- and electroluminescence are possible applications for materials combining the optical properties of arylenevinylene polymers with the characteristic orientational order of the liquid-crystalline state. Thermally stale, soluble materials with a broad mesophase, which can be oriented macroscopically using conventional processing techniques and when exhibit highly anisotropic luminescence behavior of use in polarized LEDs are presented.
