Red-emitting organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) are important for displays and lighting, with the latter benefiting from solution processable materials, which would enable low embedded energy, scalable fabrication. Herein we describe the effect of annealing and phase separation on the performance of solution-processed OLEDs incorporating a light emitting layer composed of the exciplex host, m-MTDATA:OXD-7, and a red phosphorescent light-emitting dendrimer, Ir(tDCpq)3. Solution-processed OLEDs containing an annealed emissive layer with a low dendrimer concentration (2 wt%) were found to have the best performance, which was higher than the device in which the light emitting layer was not annealed. The improvement in performance of the annealed device was ascribed to improved charge mobility within the emissive layer caused by phase separation of the OXD-7. The OLEDs containing annealed m-MTDATA:OXD-7:(2 wt%) Ir(tDCpq)3 had maximum current, power and external quantum efficiencies of 17.9 cd/A, 19.4 lm/W, and 14.8±0.6%, respectively. The fact that the maximum EQE of 14.8% was larger than that expected based on the PLQY and the normal out-coupling efficiency of 20% from a bottom-emitting devices was determined to arise from the different pathways of exciton formation under photoexcitation and charge injection.



During the seminar:

• Please keep your microphone muted unless you are speaking. This is to reduce the background noise and avoid disrupting the presenter.

• You will be automatically muted when you join the virtual meeting room. To speak, you will need to unmute yourself by using the audio controls in the lower left of the Zoom window.

• If you have not used Zoom before, then it is recommended that you join 5 minutes before the starting time to ensure that you have your software set up correctly.

Please be aware that the talks will be recorded and posted on the AUCAOS website.
