Extract

Traditionally, organic light-emitting devices (OLEDs) are prepared with discrete layers for hole and electron transport. Different materials must be used for these layers because most materials will preferentially transport one charge carrier more efficiently than the other. In most cases, the emitter material serves a dual purpose as both the emitter and the hole or electron transporter. One of the major failure modes of OLEDs results from thermal instabilities of the insulating organic layers caused by joule heating during device operation. The problem is most pronounced for the hole transporting layer (HTL) material which are usually tertiary aromatic amines (i.e., TPD and NPD). This has been attributed to the relatively lower glass transition temperatures (Tg) and resulting inferior thermal stabilities compared to the other materials making up the device. Many researchers have produced HTL materials with higher Tgs based on tertiary aromatic amine oligomers and starburst compounds. Starburst or model dendritic materials offer the advantages of high thermal stabilities and multi-functionality.
