Abstract

Qualitatively, the basic principles behind the operation of OLEDs are well established. In order to optimize device parameters such as power efficiency and operating voltage, to explore the limits of performance and to understand changes in the electrical properties as diodes age, it is necessary to develop a quantitative understanding of each of the relevant processes: injection of electrons and holes at the cathode and anode, charge transport, recombination and exciton formation, and emission. In this paper, we summarize our experimental, theoretical and numerical studies to address these issues.
