abstract

  • The interfacial structure plays a critical role in modern optoelectronics. Currently multilayer electrodes are used to optimize the injection and lifetime properties. The choice of interlayer is not universal, with different effects for the same material with different capping metals. Using a novel in-situ characterization method with X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, the organic/inorganic interface in OLEDs was examined for two common cathode metals with a LiF interlayer. The impact of the interfacial layer on the performance of devices can be attributed to the bulk lattice matching of the interfacial layer and of the by-products of interfacial oxidation, and the metallic cathode.
