Although organic light-emitting devices have been commercialized as flat panel displays since 1997, only singlet excitons were emitted. Full use of singlet and triplet excitons, electrophosphorescence, has attracted increasing attentions after the premier work made by Forrest, Thompson, and co-workers. In fact, red electrophosphorescent dye has already been(More)
Organic electroluminescent devices are light-emitting diodes in which the active materials consist entirely of organic materials. Here, the fabrication of a white light-emitting organic electroluminescent device made from vacuum-deposited organic thin films is reported. In this device, three emitter layers with different carrier transport properties, each(More)
High power conversion efficiencies of over 6.0% are achieved with a squaraine compound from co-deposited photovoltaic cells with a simple device structure, in which the efficiency is insensitive to blending ratios and thicknesses of photoactive layers. It demonstrates the huge potential of low molecular weight materials in photovoltaic cells via vacuum(More)
In this work, 2,4-bis[4-(N,N-diisobutylamino)-2,6-dihydroxyphenyl] squaraine (SQ) was systematically studied as an electron donor in solution processed photovoltaic cells, showing power conversion efficiency of >4.0% under AM1.5G 1 sun illumination at room temperature. Low mobilities were found to limit charge transport in the bulk heterojunctions.(More)
Tandem organic light-emitting devices (OLEDs) have attracted considerable attention for solid-state lighting and flat panel displays because their tandem architecture enables high efficiency and long operational lifetime simultaneously. In the tandem OLED structure, plural light-emitting units (LEUs) are stacked in series through a charge generation layer(More)
Multi-organic light-emitting devices comprising two light-emitting units stacked in series through a charge-generation layer are fabricated by solution processes. A zinc oxide nanoparticles/polyethylene-imine bilayer is used as the electron-injection layer and phosphomolybdic acid is used as the charge-generation layer. Appropriate choice of solvents during(More)
An efficient energy transfer from an exciplex between a sulfone and an arylamine derivatives to a blue phosphorescent emitter enables OLED performances among the best, of over 50 lm W(-1) at 100 cd m(-2) . The formation of the exciplex realizes a barrier-free hole-electron recombination pathway, thereby leading to high OLED performances with an extremely(More)
A homoleptic iridium (iii) tris(pheny-limidazolinate) complex realizes a high EQE of 30%, a low turn-on voltage of 2.5 V, and a small efficiency roll-off in a blue organic light-emitting device (OLED). This device also shows high power efficiencies over 75 lm W(-1) and an ideal light distribution pattern at 100 cd m(-2).
High-effi ciency white organic light-emitting devices (OLEDs) have great potential for energy saving solid-state lighting and eco-friendly fl at-display panels. [ 1 ] In addition, white OLEDs are expected to open new designs in lighting technology, such as transparent lighting panels or luminescent wallpapers because of being able to form paper-like thin fi(More)
