Missing links for triplet radiative recombination in light emitting devices

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference Paper published in Proceedingspeer-review


    Light emission from triplet excitons in light emitting devices (LED) is reviewed. The rate of spontaneous emission of triplet excitons is presented in inorganic amorphous semiconductors, molecular crystals and conjugated polymers containing platinum atoms in the chain. It is shown that the recently discovered new time-dependent spin-orbit-photon interaction operator is responsible for the radiative emission from triplet excitations in materials, and the transition occurs due to flipping of the spin. The rate depends on the square of the atomic number of the constituting atoms. The calculated rates and corresponding radiative lifetime agree very well with the known experimental results in conjugated polymers and inorganic amorphous semiconductors. Rates in molecular crystals are compared with those obtained from the traditional theory.
