Research on organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) containing solid state organic semiconductors has advanced signifi cantly in the past twenty years, resulting in indispensible technology for fl at panel displays [ 1 ] and lighting applications. [ 2 ] This is because OLEDs exhibit not only high-performance light-emitting characteristics [ 3 , 4 ] but also(More)
We measured the external electroluminescence quantum efficiency (eta(ext)) in light-emitting field-effect transistors (LETs) made of organic single crystals and found that, in the ambipolar transport region, eta(ext) is not degraded up to several hundreds A/cm(2) current-density range, which is 2 orders of magnitude larger than that achieved in conventional(More)
The performance of an organic thin film photodiode (OPD), fabricated from a hetero-junction comprised of two layers of C(60) and a phthalocyanine-Cu(II) complex was evaluated by detecting the chemiluminescence generated from the reaction of luminol with horseradish peroxidase in the presence of H(2)O(2), and the fluorescence from resorufin, as an optical(More)
A fluorescence detection system for a microfluidic device using an organic light-emitting diode (OLED) as the excitation light source and a charge-coupled device (CCD) as the photo detector was developed. The OLED was fabricated on a glass plate by photolithography and a vacuum deposition technique. The OLED produced a green luminescence with a peak(More)
An organic thin film photodiode (OPD) was successfully employed as a portable photodetector in a competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) of a class of nonionic surfactants, namely alkylphenol polyethoxylates (APnEOs) which are an environmental pollutant. Microbeads that were chemically immobilized with an anti-APnEOs antibody were used in the(More)
To enhance the performance of organic photovoltaic (OPV) cells, preparation of organic nanometer-sized pillar arrays is fascinating because a significantly large area of a donor/acceptor heterointerface having continuous conduction path to both anode and cathode electrodes can be realized. In this study, we grew cupper phthalocyanine (CuPc) crystalline(More)
A compact photometric detector was constructed from an organic light emitting diode (OLED) based on a europium complex, europium(diben-zoylmethanato)3(bathophenanthroline) (Eu(DBM)3bath), as the light source and an organic photodiode (OPD) fabricated from a hetero-junction of two layers of copper phthalocyanine (CuPc)/fullerene (C60) as the photo-detector(More)
A compact fluorescence detector was constructed on a microchip from an organic light emitting diode (OLED) as the light source and an organic photodiode (OPD) as the photo-detector and was used in an immunoassay for alkylphenol polyethoxylates (APE). The OLED based on a terbium complex emitted a sharp light at the main wavelength of 546 nm with a full width(More)
The design of organic compounds with nearly no gap between the first excited singlet (S1) and triplet (T1) states has been demonstrated to result in an efficient spin-flip transition from the T1 to S1 state, that is, reverse intersystem crossing (RISC), and facilitate light emission as thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF). However, many TADF(More)
We found that a phenylene ethynylene derivative, 1,4-bis(4-(phenylethynyl)phenylethynyl)benzene (BPPB), provides very high photoluminescence efficiency both in solution (Phi(PL) = 95 +/- 3%) and thin films (Phi(PL) = 71 +/- 3%); further, we observed blue electroluminescence (EL) of lambda(EL(max)) approximately 470 and 510 nm with an external EL efficiency(More)
