Abstract

Organic light-emitting devices (OLEDs) with cohosted emitter, which is composed of 9,10-di(2-naphthyl)anthracene (ADN) and tris(8-hydroxy-quinolinato) aluminum (Alq3) and doped with 4-(dicyanomethylene)-2- t -butyl-6-(1,1,7,7-tetramethy ljulolidin-4-yl-vinyl)- 4H -pyran (DCJTB), were fabricated and studied. The efficiency of OLEDs with a cohost emitter was higher than that with a single host emitter. For the cohost emitter with ADN/ Alq 3 weight ratio of 75:25, the 3.4 cd/A efficiency of the resulted OLEDs was obtained. It is found that the absorption spectra of DCJTB and the emission spectra of Alq3 changed with the composition of the emitter. This phenomenon is attributed to the polarization effect. On the basis of the Förster's theory, the resulted overlap integral exhibits the highest value for this cohost emitter. The experimental results reveal that the cascade energy transfer plays an important role in the luminance efficiency enhancement of the cohost emitter in OLEDs.
