The electroluminescence efficiency of Ir-based green emitter devices is very sensitive to the nature of the hole transport layer used. We show that by inserting a 1 nm layer of bis[4-(N,N-diethylamino)-2-methylphenyl](4- methylphenyl)methane (MPMP) in a 4, 4′ - bis- (carbazol-9-yl) biphenyl (CBP) hole transport layer, a device that combines the positive attributes of both MPMP (high efficiency) and CBP (low injection voltage) is obtained. These results can be understood based on a combined ultraviolet photoemission spectroscopy/inverse photoemission spectroscopy study, which reveals the very low electron affinity and superior electron blocking capability of MPMP.
