Enhancement Mechanisms of the Color Purity in Blue Organic Light-Emitting Devices Fabricated Utilizing an Emitting Layer Containing Mixed Fluorescence and Phosphorescence Host Materials
The electrical and optical properties of blue organic light-emitting devices (OLEDs) containing a mixed host emitting layer (EML) consisting of a 1,3-bis(carbazole-9-yl) benzene (mCP) layer and a 3-tert-butyl-9,10-di(naphtha-2-yl) anthracene (TBADN) layer were investigated. The driving voltage of the OLEDs with a mixed host EML was smaller than that of the OLEDs with a single EML. The electroluminescence spectra for OLEDs containing a mixed host EML showed a dominant peak related to the mCP or the TBADN layer. The color coordinates of the OLEDs containing a 5% TBADN-doped mCP EML were (0.146, 0.091), indicative of the deep blue color coordinates.
