ABSTRACT
We demonstrate efficient blue electrophosphorescence using exothermic energy transfer from a host consisting of N,N'-dicarbazolyl-3,5-benzene (mCP) to the phosphorescent iridium complex iridium(III)bis[(4,6-difluorophenyl)-pyridinato-N,C[sup 2']picolinate (Flrpic). By examining the temperature dependence of the radiative lifetime and the photoluminescence of a film of mCP doped with Flrpic, we confirm the existence of exothermic energy transfer in contrast to the endothermic transfer characteristic of the N,N'-dicarbazolyl-4-4'-biphenyl and Flrpic system. In employing exothermic energy transfer between mCP and Flrpic, a maximum external electroluminescent quantum efficiency of (7.5±0.8)% and a luminous power efficiency of (8.9±0.9)lm/W are obtained, representing a significant increase in performance over previous endothermic blue electrophosphorescent devices.
