Abstract
Innovative hybrid inorganic/organic structures (HIOS) should implement exciton creation by electrical injection in inorganic semiconductors followed by resonant energy transfer and light emission from the organic semiconductor. An inherent obstacle of such designs is the typically unfavorable energy level alignment at HIOS interfaces, which assists in exciton separation thus quenching light emission. Here, we introduce a technologically relevant method to optimize the hybrid structure's energy levels: ZnO and a tailored ladder-type oligophenylene. Using an organometallic donor interlayer the ZnO work function is substantially lowered eliminating the ZnO - L4P-sp3 interfacial energy level offsets enhancing the hybrid structure's radiative emission yield sevenfold.
