Blue thermally activated delayed fluorescence emitters for high efficiency OLEDs
Last Update

Project leader Dalius Gudeika

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 (EQE) 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 (ηc) and power (ηp) efficiencies will be comparable to those of the known prototypes.

Project progress

February 19, 2018

Phenanthroimidazole-based vinyl monomers were obtained by simple three-step procedures, and their thermal, photophysical and electrochemical properties were investigated. The solutions of the compounds exhibit emission peaks in the range from 388 to 398 nm. In the solid state, the emission of these molecules shows red shift which is coherent with the similar red-shifts of the corresponding absorption spectra. The prepared work thesis will be presented at 11-th international conference "Electronic processes in organic and inorganic materials'', 2018, May 21-25, Ivano-Frankivsk, Ukraine. The conference article will be published in the journal of “Molecular Crystals and Liquid Crystals”.

By systematic investigations of molecules with slightly different geometric arrangements between donor and acceptor moieties, the time-consuming development of suitable synthesis routes will be restricted to the most promising candidates.
