Abstract

This article describes a series of platinum (II) azatetrabenzoporphyrin emitters for near-infrared (NIR) organic light emitting diode (OLED) applications. Platinum (II) aza-triphenyltetrabenzoporphyrin (PtNTBP) results in a 72 nm shift in the photoluminescent (PL) emission spectrum to 842 nm compared to 770 nm of the platinum (II) tetraphenyltetrabenzoporphyrin (PtTPTBP). Also, the full width at half maximum of the emission spectrum of PtNTBP was significantly narrowed to 27 nm compared to 40 nm for PtTPTBP. The multilayer devices fabricated by thermal vacuum evaporation process employing PtTPTBP, PtNTBP, and cis-PtN2TBP exhibit electroluminescent (EL) emission peak at 770 nm, 848 nm, and 846 nm with the peak external quantum efficiency (EQE) of 8.0%, 2.8%, and 1.5%, respectively. Even with the decrease in EQE of devices employing PtNTBP and cis-PtN2TBP compared with those employing PtTPTBP, the combination of the spectral narrowing and the bathochromic shift to lower energy EL emission demonstrates the promise of PtNTBP for NIR applications. In the meanwhile, the solution-processed single-layer device using PtNTBP demonstrates the EQE of 0.33% and the peak EL emission at 844 nm.
