Extended Lifetime of Fluorescent Organic Light Emitting Diodes by Combining Ultra-Clean Fabrication Conditions and Annealing after Device Fabrication

Duy Cong Le and Hideyuki Murata

We have previously demonstrated that stability of organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) is governed by the amount of residual water in an evaporation chamber. To further remove the residual water, two non-evaporable getter pumps (NEGP) were added to the evaporation chamber pumped with tandem turbo molecular pumps (TMP). The lifetime at which luminance reaches to 90% of the initial luminance (LT90=136 h) of devices fabricated with NEGP (OLED-NEGP) showed significant improvement (more than 5 times) than that (25 h) without NEGP (OLED-TMP). We further improve the device LT90 by annealing the device after fabrication. The LT90 (236 h) of the annealed OLED-NEGP showed 9.4 times longer lifetime than that of OLED-TMP. From detailed analysis of photoluminescence lifetime and morphological measurement, the improvement in the stability of annealed OLED-NEG is ascribed to the increase in the density of the hole transport layer.

I am honored to receive the award for the best poster presentation of 12th A-COE conference. I acknowledge my supervisor, Prof. Hideyuki Murata for his guidance. I acknowledge members in Murata laboratory for their assistance. I also acknowledge my wife, Linh for consistently inspiring me during my graduate study. Finally, I am indebted to my parents for their reliable supports.
