Simple Structure and High Efficiency Phosphorescent OLEDs Using Narrow Band-gap Bipolar Host Material

  • Young Hoon Son (a1) and Jang Hyuk Kwon (a1)


We report high-efficiency phosphorescent blue OLEDs with an organic three stacked structure. Using a high-triplet-energy-hole transporting material of TAPC and a high-triplet-energy-electron transporting material of TmPyPB, the organic three stacked structure has been realized with three new narrow band-gap blue host materials. These host materials have bipolar characteristics and high triplet energy of >2.8 eV. Very low onset voltages of 2.8~3.0 V and driving voltages of 4.2~4.6 V to obtain a brightness of 1000 cd/m2 are achieved in this three stacked device configuration. Maximum external quantum efficiency above 20% is reported.
