Bridging the efficiency gap: Fully Bridged Dinuclear Cu(I)-complexes for Singlet Harvesting in High-Efficiency OLEDs

Document Type



The substitution of rare metals such as iridium and platinum in light-emitting materials is a key step to enable low-cost mass-production of organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). Here, it is demonstrated that using a solution-processed, fully bridged dinuclear Cu(I)-complex can yield very high efficiencies. An optimized device gives a maximum external quantum efficiency of 23 ± 1% (73 ± 2 cd A−1).
