Paper Abstract

The effect of ozone and O2 plasma treatment of ITO on the charge-carrier injection in ITO/N, N'-bis-(1-napthyl)-N, N'- diphenyl-1,1'biphenyl-4,4'-diamine (NPB)/tris(8-quinolinolato)-aluminum (Alq3)/Al organic heterojunction devices have been studied through the analysis of current-voltage characteristics. From the experiments, it is demonstrated that the average electric field inside Alq3 layer is larger than the average field in the NPB layer. The investigation demonstrated that the hole injection into NPB from anode is Fowler-Nordheim (FN) tunneling and the electron injection into Alq3 from cathode is Richardson-Schottky (RS) thermonic emission.
