Abstract

This contribution describes the use of layer-by-layer self-limiting siloxane chemisorption processes to self-assemble structurally regular multilayer organic LED (OLED) devices. Topics discussed include: 1) the synthesis of silyl-functionalized precursor molecules for hole transport layer (HTL), emissive layer (EML), and electron transport layer (ETL) self-assembly, 2) the use of layer-by-layer self-assembly for ITO electrode modification/passivation/hole-electron balancing in a vapor-deposited device, 3) the microstructure/chemical characterization of HTL self-assembly using a prototype triarylamine precursor, 4) fabrication and properties of a hybrid self-assembled+vapor deposited two-layer LED, 4) fabrication and properties of a fully self-assembled two-layer OLED.
