WO3 nanobelts doped PEDOT:PSS layer for efficient hole-injection in quantum dot light-emitting diodes

Abstract

Through a facile solid-state mechanochemical method, we have prepared the WO3 nanobelts with a length of ~80 nm and a width of ~10 nm, which were doped into the PEDOT:PSS as the hybrid hole-injecting layer (HIL) for the conventional red quantum dot light-emitting diodes (QLEDs). The work function (WF) of the hybrid HIL was enhanced from 4.91 to 5.25 eV and decreased the hole-injecting barrier from 0.89 to 0.55 eV. Notably, an optimal red QLED based on the hybrid HIL PEDOT:PSS: WO3 (4.0 wt%) achieved a satisfactory reduction in the driving voltage at the luminance of 100 cd/A from 5.18 V (pristine PEDOT:PSS) to 2.97 V. Moreover, the optimal device exhibits a maximal current efficiency of 15.5 cd/A and a high external quantum efficiency (EQE) of 10.60%, which are nearly two-folds higher than those (8.0 cd/A and 5.82%) of the reference device based on the pristine PEDOT:PSS. It was demonstrated that doping these as-prepared WO3 nanobelts into the PEDOT:PSS could be an effectual route toward the high-performance QLEDs.
