Blue thermally activated delayed fluorescence emitters for high efficiency OLEDs

Dr. Dalius Gudeika (ISSP UL) speaks at scientific seminar of Doctoral School “Functional Materials and Nanotechnologies” of ISSP UL on February 15 at 13:00, Ķengaraga street 8, 2nd floor hall.

Project proposal deals with the development of low-cost, stable blue emitters based on sulfones, pyridines and benzonitriles for applications in high-efficiency organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) based on Thermally Activated Delayed Fluorescence (TADF). The proposed emitters will contain rigid core, rendering them as potential TADF emitters, by grafting suitable donors on the emitter framework, thus enhancing triplet-singlet back conversion. These materials will be photophysically characterized in the forms of solutions and films using absorption, emission spectroscopies to quantify emission quantum yields, emission life times. OLEDs will be fabricated to evaluate the electroluminescence parameters of the materials. Having new stable TADF emitters, it is planned in the frame of the project to fabricate stable blue OLEDs with CIE chromaticity coordinates as close as possible to blue colour standard of 0.14, 0.08. For those OLEDs, it’s expected obtaining of the maximum external quantum efficiency higher than 15%. The maximum brightness will be reached higher than 5000 cd/m2 that will unclose the practical applications of those OLEDs. Another output parameters of OLED such as the turn on voltages, the roll-off, the current and power efficiencies will be comparable to those of the known prototypes.
