Lecture Title: Next-Generation OLEDs: New Materials and Emission Mechanisms

The efficiency of organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) is fundamentally determined by the spin of excited state electrons. For conventional fluorescent OLEDs [1, 2], the radiative recombination of triplet excitons is spin-forbidden, limiting the maximum internal quantum efficiency of electroluminescence to the generation probability of singlet excitons. In the past decades, high-efficiency phosphorescent [3, 4] and thermally activated delayed fluorescence [5] OLEDs, which utilise triplet excitons effectively, were demonstrated. In our recent work [6], using a new class of emissive molecules, carbene-metal-amides, we present an unusual emission pathway based on rotationally accessed spin-state inversion (RASI), which results in extremely efficient spin-state interconversion and photoemission. To investigate this unique emission mechanism, detailed time-resolved luminescence spectroscopy and quantum chemical calculations have been carried out. The performance metrics of our best solution-processed OLEDs (with peak external quantum efficiencies of 27.5%) are comparable to, or exceeding those of state-of-the-art OLEDs and quantum-dot LEDs. Considerations for the design of molecular materials based on this principle, and new approaches for achieving fully solution-processed multi-layer device architectures will be addressed. Besides, an overview of other relevant research activities in our group, including the investigation of triplet exciton fusion [7] for next generation optoelectronics, will be presented.
