Paper Abstract

Organometallic iridium(III) complexes have seen widespread use over the past two decades, particularly as phosphorescent dopants in organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) due to their large spin-orbit coupling and metal-toligand charge transfer (MLCT) excited states. Interest in the non-linear optical (NLO) applications of these materials has increased recently with reports of both two-photon absorption (2PA) and reverse saturable absorption (RSA). A family of materials of the form [IrIII(NO2piq)2(acac)] were synthesized and characterized, where acac is acetylacetonate and NO2piq is a nitrophenylisoquinoline ligand. In order to assess structure-property relationships for the photophysics of these complexes, the placement of the nitro group was altered on the phenyl ring. Systematic control over the maxima of the absorption and photoluminescence bands attributed to the MLCT excited states was achieved through the ligand variation. The photophysical properties of this family of materials are discussed in detail and include their linear absorption spectra, photoluminescence measurements at 298 and 77K, excited state lifetimes, and CIE color chromaticity coordinates.
