Synthesis and luminescence properties of tetraphenylethene-based small molecules used in organic light emitting diodes

Odabaş, Serhat
Organic light emitting diodes (OLED) is an exciting new technology that attracted much attention to scientist for emissive technology. The basic OLED structure consists of a stack of fluorescent organic layers sandwiched between a transparent conducting anode and metallic cathode. The important problems in luminescence is that, molecules aggregate in solid state that leads formation of excimers which results in emission quenching so that most of the luminescent materials show weak emissions in their solid forms. In order to overcome these problem studies has been carried out to either suppress the quenching of organic luminophores or to produce significant enhancements in their light emission upon aggregation. Aggregation-induced emission (AIE) materials seem to be promising emitters in the fabrication of electroluminescent devices with high efficiency. In this study, various tetraphenylethylene (TPE) emitters were synthesized and characterized for using in OLED applications. The TPE has been functionalized with various heterocyclic aromatic side groups. Photophysical, electrochemical, thermal and AIE properties of the compounds were studied. In addition, the synthesized molecules were examined for their.


Synthesis, electrochemical characterization and organic solar cell applications of selenophene containing conjugated polymers
Yaşa, Mustafa; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2017)
Donor-Acceptor (D-A) type conjugated polymers are very popular for potential applications such as organic light emitting diodes, solar cells, electrochromic devices and organic field effect transistors. In literature, cyclopentadithiophene and its derivatives are commonly used electron donor units for organic solar cells. The incorporation of selenium atom into polymer backbone results in low band gap polymers as compared to sulfur and oxygen counterparts. In this study, selenophene containing conjugated po...

Öklem, Gülce; Günbaş, Emrullah Görkem; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2017)
DPP-based conjugated polymers are recently used in organic light emitting diodes, electrochromic devices, organic field effect transistor and organic solar cell applications. Their advantageous properties, such as broad optical absorption in Near Infra Red (NIR) region, high charge carrier mobility and good film forming ability make them an excellent choice for generation of highly efficient solar cells. In this thesis, using donor-acceptor approach (D-A) we aimed to synthesize novel polymers with furan bas...

Altınok, Yahya Kemal; Erkmen, İsmet; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2012)
Laser Diodes (LDs) are semiconductor coherent lightening devices which are widely used in many fields such as defence, industry, medical and optical communications. They have advantageous characteristics such as having higher electrical-to-optical and optical-to-optical conversion efficiencies from pump source to useful output power when compared to flash lamps, which makes them the best devices to be used in range finding applications. Optical output power of lasers depends on current through LDs. Therefor...

Hızalan Özsoy, Gönül; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Department of Chemistry (2017)
In this study, polymer based solar cells and polymer based light emitting diodes were constructed. In the third and fourth chapters of this study, effect of terminal units and effect of molecular weight on electroluminescence and photovoltaic properties were investigated. Triphenyl end capped polymer P1 based PLED shows luminance value of 10411cd/m2 at 8.5V whereas benzene end capped polymer P2 based PLED has the peak luminance value of 14583cd/m2 at 8V. P2 based photovoltaic devices exhibited superior perf...

Göker, Seza; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Department of Chemistry (2019)
Donor–acceptor (D–A) conjugated polymers have been widely used for potential applications such as organic light emitting diodes, solar cells, electrochromic devices and organic field effect transistors. Benzazole comprising conducting polymers are popular for the last few decades since they can be used as low-band-gap donor materials because of their strong intramolecular charge transfer characteristics and excellent photovoltaic performances. Strong electron-donating and withdrawing building blocks are nec...
