Newly developed thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) materials are attractive for application in efficient displays. Five TADF materials, including PXZ-TRZ and four carbazolyl dicyanobenzene (CDCB) derivatives of 4CzTPN, 4CzTPN - Ph, 2CzPN, and 4CzIPN, were investigated using terahertz spectroscopy in the 0.60 - 1.60 THz range. While PXZ-TRZ was almost transparent, the carbazolyl dicyanobenzene (CDCB) derivatives, especially 4CzIPN, exhibited intrinsic absorption features. Comparing these results with density functional theorem calculations, each absorption feature was clarified to originate from the intramolecular motions of the carbazole units.
