New electroluminescent (EL) molecules, dissolved in a high Tg poly(aryl-ketone) (A435), have been used in double spincoated electroluminescent devices. The first EL molecule is a soluble AlQ3 derivative and the second one is a hexaphenyl-substituted isobenzofuran. The maximum solubility of both EL molecules in A435 is about 70 wt%. The typical structure of the devices is: [ITO/HTL/ETL/Mg], where HTL is a new high Tg hole transport aryl amine polymer and ETL is one of the new EL molecules in solid solution in A435. HTL is spin-coated from chloroform while the second layer is spin-coated from toluene. HTL is completely insoluble in toluene. For the devices prepared with the AlQ3 soluble derivative or for the devices prepared with the hexaphenyl-substituted isobenzofuran, the luminance has been found to increase with the EL molecule content (up to 50 ± 5 wt%) in A435. Maximum luminance values higher than 2000 cd/m2 have been measured for the soluble AlQ3 (peak emission at 545 nm) while they reach 1000 cd/m2 for the isobenzofuran derivative (peak emission at 505 nm). The luminance decreases drastically when the EL molecule content in A435 increases above 50 wt%. The current density in both double spin-coated OLEDs is quite large affecting therefore their quantum efficiency. Solutions to improve the quantum efficiency are described.

More about this publication?
  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
