Semiconductor characterization

We integrated an Organic LED characterization system for OLED R&D production testing. For this purpose, we designed and fabricated a sample-holder stack hosting up to nine conventional glass samples. Each glass sample has up to 12 organic LED array areas. A contact array in the sample-holder stack allows connecting the sample to a Keithley ™ SMU by means of a switching matrix and perform JVL characterization on monochromatic, bicolor or tricolor leds. Luminance and Spectral radiance are measured using a Konica Minolta™  Radiometer. The sample holder is stepped in front of the camera using a three axis IAI Modbus positioner along the 108 leds. All instruments are computer controlled.

We created a software with a graphical user interface (GUI) with three focus areas. One area enables the definition of the measured sites, another allows defining a single sweep over all used leds to detect functionality. A third focus area allows performing a full sweep characterization including spectral response. Data are displayed in tree form along the IV and spectral response graphics. The software allows top and bottom emission measured by rotating the sample-holder and the storage and recall of different combinations of sample stepping-layout and OLED emission-type.
