Electrical properties of polymer/metal interface in polymer light-emitting devices: electron injection barrier suppression
- 99 Downloads
The electrical characterization of a high efficient multilayer polymer light emitting diode using poly[(2-methoxy-5-hexyloxy)-p-phenylenevinylene] as the emissive layer and an anionic fluorinated surfactant as the electron transport layer was performed. For the sake of comparison, a conventional single layer device was fabricated. The density current vs. voltage measurements revealed that the conventional device has a higher threshold voltage and lower current compared to the surfactant modified device. The effective barrier height for electron injection was “suppressed”. The influence of the interfaces and bulk contributions to the dc and high frequencies conductivities of the devices was also discussed.
