Abstract

Alternating current thin film electroluminescent devices were fabricated using diamond-like carbon (DLC) as an active electroluminescent layer. An enhanced short wavelength response was observed in such devices with electroluminescent signal intensity evident to energies in excess of 3.3 eV, well into the UV region of the spectrum. This enhanced short-wavelength response is attributed to the improved purity of the DLC layer associated with extended pumping of the deposition chamber prior to the DLC deposition.
