Researchers developed a high performance, low-cost HIL material for solution-processed OLEDs
Researchers from Korea's Pusan National University have developed a new low-cost hole injection layer (HIL) material for solution-processed OLEDs, achieving higher efficiency and lifetime compared to the current state-of-the-art.
The new material is solvent-resistant (>99%) and thermally cross-linkable. The researchers used this material to create a solution-procssed red phosphorescent OLED device. The researchers placed the material between the ITO electrode and the HTL material, thus achieving photo-crosslinking of (poly-TPD) as HTL on top of crosslinked HIL.
