Abstract

We report on the photophysical, amplified spontaneous emission (ASE), and electroluminescence properties of a blue-emitting octafluorene derivative in spin-coated films. The neat film shows an extremely low ASE threshold of 90 nJ/cm2, which is related to its high photoluminescence quantum yield of 87% and its large radiative decay rate of 1.7 × 109 s−1. Low-threshold organic distributed feedback semiconductor lasers and fluorescent organic light-emitting diodes with a maximum external quantum efficiency as high as 4.4% are then demonstrated, providing evidence that this octafluorene derivative is a promising candidate for organic laser applications.
