In this work, organic light emitting devices (OLEDs) based on a blue-emitting fluorescent guest/host-system from Merck OLED Materials GmbH is investigated. OLEDs comprising a hole transport layer (HTL), the emissive film Merck Blue Host:Merck Blue Guest (MBH:MBG), a hole-blocking film and the electron transport layer (ETL) were prepared by vacuum thermal evaporation. The hole-blocking capabilities of aluminum(III)bis(2-methyl-8-quinolinato)4-phenylphenolate (BAlq) and the host material MBH were investigated. By employing an additional HBL, the current efficiency could be increased from 5.7 to 7.4 cd/A. Furthermore, 2,3,5,6-tetrafluoro-7,7,8,8-tetracyano-quinodimethane (F4-TCNQ) doping of the HTL was investigated. Devices with 4,7-diphenyl-1,10-phenanthroline (BPhen) or 1,3,5-Tris-(N-phenylbenzimidazol-2-yl)benzene (TPBI) as alternative ETLs were fabricated and conclusions were drawn regarding the charge balance in the devices. It was found that employing tris-(8-hydroxyquinoline) aluminum (Alq3) as ETL leads to the best lifetimes of about 2000 hours at a constant current of 20 mA/cm2 while p-doping in combination with BPhen as ETL leads to the highest efficiency of 5.7 lm/W max. and 4.4 lm/W at 1000 cd/m2.
