Characterization for Organic Solid Solution and Formation of Organic Electronics


Recent two decades have seen the rapid development of organic electronics and much attention has been paid to carrier transport behavior. However, other characteristics, such as material compatibility, may be overlooked. We propose a new doping method taking advantage of fused organic solid solution, which is prepared by high-pressure and high temperature processing. In this method, the stable material systems can be selected and high performance organic light-emitting diodes with different colors have been demonstrated.
