Article title

White and Saturated Blue Phosphorescent OLED
based on the Non-Emissive Homoleptic Complex
Ir(ppz)3 as single active material


Title variants

Languages of publication



The well-known homoleptic iridium (III) complex
Ir(ppz)3 which is only emissive in solution at low temperature
has been investigated as dopant in a p − i stacked
OLED architecture. Interestingly, while using this phosphor
as a single emitter, awhite OLED was obtained. Emission
colour was determined as being concentration and
