Polymeric White Organic Light-Emitting Diodes with Two Emission Layers
Abstract:A white light-emitting diode was fabricated by preparing multilayer emitting films with an inserted buffer layer. The device structures are ITO/PEDOT:PSS/Emissive layer/LiF/Al. The emissive layer comprises a yellow-emitting layer of Poly[9,9-dioctylfluorenyl-2,7-diyl]-co-1,4-benzo-(2,1,3)-thiadiazole (F8BT), a blue-emitting layer of Poly[9,9-di-(2′-ethylhexyl)fluorenyl-2,7-diyl] (BEHF) and PEDOT:PSS as a buffer layer between the emission layers. The solution processed multi-layer polymer light-emitting diodes (PLED) were prepared by introduction of a water-soluble buffer layer between organic solvent soluble layers. We present white organic light-emitting diodes (WOLEDs) that has bilayer emission zones. This device exhibits a brightness of 280 cd/m2 and emission efficiency of 1.18 cd/A at 12.6 V. The device with a doped PEDOT:PSS layer and a thicker blue-emission layer exhibits CIE color coordinates of (0.30, 0.34), which is close to the white coordinates of (0.33, 0.33) used by the standard CIE color coordinates.
