Paper Abstract

Recent electroluminescence (EL) detected magnetic resonance and transient EL studies reveal the presence and role of holes that drift beyond the recombination zone and approach the cathode in small molecular organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) with specific materials and structures. In particular, these studies suggest that these holes are responsible for trion (i.e., a bipolaron stabilized by a counterpolaron on an adjacent molecule) formation in the electron transport layer, and may contribute to EL spikes observed at the end of a bias pulse. The significance of these holes to overall OLED performance is discussed.
