Colorful Emission from OLEDs of Porphyrin Doped MEH-PPV


Article Preview

The properties of photoluminescence (PL) and electroluminescence (EL) of 5,10,15,20- tetra-p-tolyl-21H, 23H-porphine (TTP) doped poly[2-methoxy-5-(2’-ethylhexyloxy)-1,4- phenylenevinylene] (MEH-PPV) was studied in this paper. A multi-color emission from the corresponding light-emitting device was observed.
