Abstract : Our proposal to ONR focused on the development of an entirely new diode laser based upon electroluminescent organic thin films. We proposed to develop new polymers for this important application. As shown below, we have made significant progress during the ten first months of this project toward the realization of these challenging objectives. We have successfully fabricated a promising LED based on a new aluminum quinolate derivative that emits in the blue-green and that can be dissolved in a polymer matrix and spin-cast.
