Özet

Cobalt ferrite magnetic nanoparticles (CoFe2O4 MNPs) were successfully prepared by citric acid-assisted sol-gel auto combustion method and used in emissive layer of organic light emitting diode (OLED). Dimensional, structural and magnetic properties of CoFe2O4 nanoparticles (NPs) were recearched and compared by using X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM). CoFe2O4 MNPs were utilized at various concentrations (0.5 wt%, 1.0 wt% and 2.0 wt%) in the emissive layer of the OLEDs. The luminance, current efficiency and the electroluminescence characteristics of the devices with and without CoFe2O4 MNPs were investigated. An external magnetic field, B-ext, has also been applied to the OLEDs doped with MNPs while under operation. Effects of MNPs on OLED characteristics under B-ext were studied thoroughly. In the tailored device architecture, poly (3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene): poly polystyrene sulphonate (PEDOT: PSS) and poly(2-methoxy-5-(2-ethyl-hexyloxy))-1,4-phenylene vinylene (MEH-PPV) were used as a hole transport layer (HTL) and an emissive layer respectively with ITO/PEDOT: PSS/ MEH-PPV: CoFe2O4/Ca/Al device architecture. The obtained results of the fabricated OLEDs were enhanced in the presence of CoFe2O4 NPs under B-ext due to providing density of states in the polymer matrices. The turn-on voltage was diminished
