Abstract

We have investigated the relationship between the energy levels of an emissive layer and the modulation rate of organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) based on a distyrylbenzene derivative, 1,4-bis[2-[4-[N,N- di(p-tolyl)amino]phenyl]vinyl]benzene (DSB). By utilizing DSB as an emitting material, a high modulation rate can be realized because of the short fluorescence lifetime of 0.2โ€‰ns of DSB. Furthermore, we also found that an energy gap between an emissive layer and an adjacent organic layer is an important parameter to improve modulation rate. DSB-doped 4,4-bis(2,2-ditolylvinyl)biphenyl is the best combination of all the organic materials used in this study, and the fastest cutoff frequency of 10โ€‰MHz has been achieved for the OLED in spite of the large emitting area of 1โ€‰mm2.
