AbstractThe use of phenylenevinylene based dendrimers for organic LEDs was investigated. We have found when a family of distyrylbenzene centred dendrimers were used as the light-emitting layers in LEDs that the efficiency was dependent on the dendrimer generation number. A maximum efficiency of 0.09% was observed in an ITO/ second generation dendrimer/Ca device.
