Synthesis of a New Polymeric Host Material for Efficient Organic Electro-Phosphorescent Devices
Abstract:We have synthesized a new polymeric host material for phosphorescent dyes, which can be used in phosphorescent light-emitting layers. An alternating copolymer, composed of N-alkylcarbazole and tetramethylbenzene units was synthesized through the Suzuki coupling reaction. We fabricated electro-phosphorescent devices using the synthesized polymeric host doped with solution-processible green and red phosphorescent dyes. Light-emitting devices have an ITO/PEDOT/polymer + dopant/Balq3/Alq3/LiF/Al configuration. The device containing one of two studied green dopants (designated as green 1) in the polymeric host showed the best performance, with a maximum luminous efficiency of 29 cd/A. A thin film of this polymeric was successfully patterned by laser-induced thermal imaging (LITI), and an electro-phosphorescent device was fabricated using the patterned film. This patterned device showed performance characteristics similar to those of a spin-coated device.
