The materials used in OLED display screens are mainly divided into cathode materials, anode materials, buffer layer materials, carrier transport materials and luminescent materials. Here are their main features.

1.Cathode material

The cathode material of the OLED is used as the cathode of the display screen. In order to improve the injection efficiency of the electron, the metal material having the lowest work function should be selected because the injection of electrons is more difficult than the injection of holes. The size of the metal work function seriously affects the luminous efficiency and service life of the OLED device. The lower the metal work function, the easier the electron injection and the higher the luminous efficiency. In addition, the lower the work function, the more the organic/metal interface barrier Low, the less Joule heat generated during work, the greater the life of the device.

2.Anode material

The anode material of the OLED is mainly used as the anode of the display screen, and the work function is required to be as high as possible in order to improve the injection efficiency of holes. OLED devices require that the electrodes must be transparent on one side, so a transparent material ITO conductive glass with a high work function is usually used as the anode. ITO (Indium Tin Oxide) glass has a transmittance of more than 80% in the wavelength range of 400 nm to 1000 nm, and also has a high transmittance in the near ultraviolet region.

3.Buffer layer material

The transport rate of holes in the OLED is about twice that of the electron transfer rate. In order to prevent the quenching of light caused by the hole transport to the organic/metal cathode interface, a buffer layer CuPc needs to be introduced in the preparation of the device. As a buffer layer, CuPc can not only reduce the interface barrier between ITO/organic layers, but also increase the adhesion of ITO/organic interface, increase hole injection contact, inhibit the injection of holes into the HTL layer, and make electrons and The injection of holes is balanced.

4.Carrier transport material

OLED devices require that the holes injected from the anode and the electrons injected from the cathode be injected into the light-emitting layer in a relatively balanced manner, that is, the injection rates of holes and electrons should be substantially the same, so it is necessary to select suitable holes and electron transport. material. During the operation of the device, because the heat may cause the transmission material to crystallize, resulting in the performance degradation of the OLED device, we should choose a material with a higher glass transition temperature (Tg) as the transmission material. In the test, NPB was generally selected as the hole transport layer, and Alq3 was selected as the electron transport material.

5.Luminescent materials

Luminescent materials are the most important materials in OLED devices. Generally, luminescent materials should have high luminous efficiency, preferably have electron or hole transport properties or both, and can be made into a stable and uniform film after vacuum evaporation, and their HOMO and LUMO energy should match the corresponding electrodes. And other characteristics. Among the small molecule luminescent materials, Alq3 is a material directly used alone as a light-emitting layer. In addition, it cannot be used as a light-emitting layer alone, and can be doped in another matrix material, such as red light dopant DCJTB, green light dopant DMQA, blue light dopant BH1, BD1, and the like. Alq3 is an organic material that can be used as both a light-emitting layer material and an electron transport layer material.
