Abstract
A small-molecular red-fluorescent dye of [7-diethylamino-3-(2-thienyl)chronmen-2-ylidene]-2,2-dicyanoviny-lamine (ACY) has been blended into blue-emitting poly(N-vinylcarbazole) (PVK) by using different solvents of chloroform and 1,2-dichloroethane. Photoluminescence characteristic of solvent effects were investigated mainly from the aspect of solvent polarity. To demonstrate the solvent effects in organic light emitting devices (OLEDs), devices with a structure of indium-tin-oxide (ITO)/PVK: ACY (x wt %)/tris(8-quinolinolato) aluminum (Alq3)/Mg: Ag were fabricated, in which the weight doping ratios are x = 0.3, 0.5 and 0.7. Using spin coating method, a blending system of PVK: ACY is dissolved in both chloroform and 1,2-dichloroethane with various doping concentrations. As a result, by choosing chloroform as solvent, a high electroluminescent (EL) performance device with a maximum luminance of 7698 cd/m2 at a driving voltage of 15.5 V was obtained, with a concentration proportion of PVK: ACY at 1000: 7. In the EL spectra of the OLEDs, red and green fluorescence of ACY and Alq3 were detected. It was found that by using 1,2-dichloroethane as a solvent, fluorescent quenching emerged with the enhancement of doping concentration. Energy transfer and Alq3 cations quencher theories were used to discuss different solvent effects on OLEDs.
