Highly efficient green and red narrowband emissive organic light-emitting diodes employing multi-resonant thermally activated delayed fluorescence emitters
MetadataShow full item record
Herein, we demonstrate how judicious selection of donor decorating a central multi-resonant thermally activated delayed fluorescence (MR-TADF) core based on DiKTa can lead to very high-performance OLEDs. Decorating the DiKTa core with triphenylamine (TPA) and diphenylamine (DPA), 3TPA-DiKTa and 3DPA-DiKTa exhibit bright, narrowband green and red emission in doped films, respectively. The OLEDs based on these emitters showed record-high performance with maximum external quantum efficiencies (EQEmax) for this family of emitters, with a EQEmax of 30.8% for 3TPA-DiKTa at λEL of 551 nm and 16.7% for 3DPA-DiKTa at λEL of 613 nm. The efficiency roll-off in the OLEDs was improved significantly by using 4CzIPN as an assistant dopant in hyperfluorescence (HF) devices. The outstanding device performance has been attributed to preferential horizontal orientation of the transition dipole moments of 3TPA-DiKTa and 3DPA-DiKTa.
