Adding a twist for enhanced performance The efficiency of organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) is fundamentally governed by the ratio of emissive singlet to dark triplet excitons that are formed from spin-polarized electron and hole currents within the material. Typically, this has set an upper limit of 25% internal quantum efficiency for OLEDs. Di et al. manipulated the ratio of spin states through a modification of process chemistry. They introduced a rotation of the molecular structure…
