Organic LEDs: The Simple Way to Solution-Processed Multilayer OLEDs – Layered Block-Copolymer Networks by Living Cationic Polymerization (Adv. Mater. 8/2009)

A novel strategy for simple, intelligent, and cost-effective fabrication of multilayer OLEDs by solution-processing is demonstrated by Klaus Meerholz and co-workers on p. 879. The cover shows the self-smoothing of thin polymer films using this method, termed “layer-by-layer crosslinking” (LBLX). LBLX enables the crosslinking and smoothing of several polymer layers on top of each other simply by using a heat and wash procedure.
