The red-emitting phosphorescent organic light-emitting device employing Bis[2-(2-benzothiazoyl)phenolato]zinc(II) (Zn (BTP)2) as a host material has been demonstrated. The device generates saturated red emission with Commission Internationale de l'Eclairage coordinates of (0.67, 0.33), characterized by a low driving voltage of 3.2 V and high external quantum efficiency of 10.3% at 10 mA cm2. Moreover, the efficiency and lifetime are improved by using 30% NPB-doped Zn (BTP)2 host in the emitting layer, where NPB is 4, 4′ -bis (N -phenyl-1-naphthyl-amino)biphenyl. The maximum external quantum efficiency of the device reaches 12.6% at 1.7 mA cm2. The device has exhibited excellent stability. The half-luminance lifetime is 240 h at 80 mA cm2 (initial luminance of 6070 cd m2). The relationship between the employed host material and device performance is discussed.
