Emission Characteristics of White Tandem Organic Light Emitting Diodes Using Blue and Red Phosphorescent Materials Park, Chan-Suk; Ju, Sung-Hoo;
We studied white tandem organic light-emitting diodes using blue and red phosphorescent materials. Optimized white single phosphorescent OLED was fabricated using CBP : FIrpic (12 vol.%, 9 nm) / CBP : : (1 vol.%, 1 vol.%, 1 nm) as emitting layer (EML). The single phosphorescent OLED showed maximum current efficiency of 22.5 cd/A, white emission with a Commission Internationale de l'Eclairage (CIE) coordinates of (0.342, 0.37) at , and variation of CIE coordinates with (, ) from 500 to . Optimized white tandem phosphorescent OLED was fabricated using CBP : FIrpic (12 vol.%, 7 nm) / CBP : : (1 vol.%, 1 vol.%, 3 nm) as EML. The tandem phosphorescent OLED showed maximum current efficiency of 49.2 cd/A, white emission with a CIE coordinates of (0.376, 0.366) at , variation of CIE coordinates with (, ) from 500 to . Maximum current efficiency of tandem phosphorescent OLED was more twice as high as single phosphorescent OLED. Our results suggest that tandem phosphorescent OLED was possible to control CIE coordinates and produce excellent color stability.
