Electrophosphorescence from a polymer guest--host system with an Iridium complex as guest: Forster energy transfer and charge trapping

Xiong Gong, The University of Akron


This work was supported by the Mitsubishi Chemical Center for Advanced Materials at UCSB and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research through the MURI Center (“Polymeric Smart Skins”), Charles Lee, Program Officer. Synthesis of the iridium complexes was supported by a grant to G. Bazan from Kodak. X. Gong is grateful to Dr. Gang Yu of Dupont Displays for valuable discussion.
