Polymer Light Emitting Diode Using PFT—Poly(9,9′-n-dihexil-2,7-fluorenodiilvinylene-alt-2,5thiophene)
Abstract:The development of new electroluminescence polymers for specific colour tuning in Polymer Light Emitting Devices (PLEDs) is currently one of the most important fields for organic electronics. This work reports a synthesis of a new electroluminescent polymer and the concomitant test as PLED emissive layer. The polymer, synthesised from fluorene, is poly(9,9′-n-dihexil-2,7-fluorenodiilvinylene-alt-2,5thiophene) or PFT. The luminescence shows large bands with maxima around 480 nm in absorption and 560 nm in emission. The device was made in a three layer structure, with PEDOT:PSS as hole transport layer, PFT as emissive layer and butyl-PBD as electron transport layer. The electroluminescence spectrum shows a strong band peaked at 540 nm. For an applied voltage of 12 Volt, the brightness at normal angle of viewing is near 10 cd/m2 and the luminous efficiency is of 0.01 lm/W. A discussion about carrier transport and the electroluminescence properties is made.
