The new hole-transport material (HTM), spiro-omethoxyimidazole (spiro-OMeIm) and its application in perovskite solar cells (PSCs) is presented as a less costly alternative to the benchmark spiro-MeOTAD, working towards the future development of low-cost PSCs.
High-efficiency pure blue thermally activated delayed fluorescence emitters with a preferentially horizontal emitting dipole orientation via a spiro-linked double D–A molecular architecture
A spiro-linked double D–A molecular architecture has been introduced to construct blue thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) emitters with a preferentially horizontal emitting dipole orientation.
Effect of structural engineering of π-spacers on anti-aggregation of D–A–π–A dyes
SPDF and EIMW act as efficient anti-aggregation π-spacers due to the rigid ‘T’ configuration of the former and the large steric hindrance of the latter.
Thermally activated delayed fluorescence emitters with low concentration sensitivity for highly efficient organic light emitting devices
By introducing a fluorene group, the molecular rigidity and intermolecular steric hindrance of SPFS-PXZ are greatly improved. As a result, SPFS-PXZ successfully realizes high external quantum efficiencies with low concentration sensitivity in OLEDs.
High-performance organic light-emitting diodes with low-efficiency roll-off using bulky tetradentate [Pt(O^N^C^N)] emitters
Double-host OLEDs with three bulky tetradentate [Pt(O^N^C^N)] emitters achieve a high EQEmax of >20%, a PEmax of >100 lm W−1, and low efficiency roll-off within 10 000 cd m−2.
