Abstract

The relationships between emission quantum efficiency and emissive regions in organic thin-film electroluminescent (EL) devices were studied. As an emissive layer (EML) and an electron transport layer (ETL) material, 9, 10-bis(4-diphenylaminostyryl)anthracene and 1,3- bis(4-tert-butylphenyl-1,3,4-oxadiazolyl)phenylene, respectively, were used. A zone doped with 2,4-bis(4-diethylamino-2-hydroxyphenyl)-1,3-dihydroxycycrobutenediylium dihydroxide was formed in an EML. The relationships between the emission intensities from the dopant and the positions of doped zones gave information on the emissive regions in each EL device. The emissive region in the single-layer (SL) device consisting only of an EML extended over the EML. That in the two-layer device (DL-E) in which an EML was combined with an ETL was located within 10 nm-wide region near the EML/ETL boundary. Moreover, the emission efficiency of the DL-E device was found to be about 20 times as high as that of the SL device. Therefore, it was found that the carrier recombination within the narrow region sufficiently apart from electrodes gave high emission efficiency.
