Electroluminescent bipolar small molecules have been attracted with great interests recently. They are found to exhibit many interesting features such as (i) reducing the structural complexity of organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) from multilayer heterojunction to monolayer homojunction devices; (ii) offering molecular p/n junction, and (iii) minimizing the formation of exciplexes. In this paper, the optical and electrical properties of novel oxadiazole- triphenylamine derivatives will be investigated. The derivatives are N-phenyl-N-(4-(5-phenyl-1,3,4-oxadiazol-2-yl)phenyl)phenylamine (POT) and N-phenyl-N-(4-(5-p-tolyl-1,3,4-oxadiazol-2-yl)phenyl)phenylamine (m-POT). The absolute absorption coefficient and refractive index have been investigated by ellipsometry and modeling. The electron mobility of POT at room temperature has been studied. The results show that the derivatives have bipolar characteristics. The electron-transporting property of POT is better than that of m-POT. The EL emission peaks of POT and m-POT are the same at 435 nm which match with their photoluminescent (PL) peaks.
