Calculation of chromophore polar order, i.e. polarization, of poled by external field nonlinear optically (NLO) active polymers is challenging. One of possible solutions is to reproduce the orientation polarization of chromophores under external field using Langevin dynamics (LD) molecular modeling.

-1.0 -1.0 DC poling hysteresis loops of model clusters built from 10 D dipoles with dipole density N = 10x1020 mol/cc: a) “Guest/ Host” system; b) and “Grafted” system In spotlight of this investigation we would like to describe NLO polymer as a “coloid” mixture or “ferrofluid” were chromophores (in our case model dipolar molecules) take part in the role of active particles - electrets. According to our simulations of model systems at low dipolar densities such system behaves “paraelectric” like. For dipole densities within a range of practical interest polarization behavior of such “ferrofluid” profoundly depends on translation movement freedom of electrets and their dipole moment. In the model systems where translation movement of “electrets” is prohibited (“Grafted” models) an “antiferroelectric” behavior start to show up with increase of dipole density and moment value. In a case when “electrets” allowed moving freely (“Guest/Host”) model systems behavior is different. Dipolar “chains” and “rings” are formed with dipole density rise in “Guest/Host” model systems. The dipolar “chains” could form “ferroelectric” like structure when oriented parallel or “antiferroelectric” like if in opposite orientation and “rings” definitely behaves “antiferroelectric” like. The shape of obtained polarization hysteresis loops allows us to suggest coexistence of both “antiferroelectric” and “ferroelectric” like structures in densely loaded “Guest/Host” model systems.
The outcome of these chromophore poling simulations of model systems by Langevin Dynamics convinced us, that method could be applicable for modeling of real chromophore/polymer composites. Results obtained within an investigated model systems give us some inspirations for practical NLO polymer design. First of all our model simulations confirm that at low (typically used for NLO polymers) poling fields high dipole moment chromophores are preferable and should yield a higher load factor and therefore better NLO efficiency. In a case when one could achieve a higher poling field values low dipole moment chromophores should perform better and higher NLO efficiency achieved.
Increased (above typically used nowadays) poling fields could be a key for breakthrough in EO polymer design. Possibility to achieve same (or even higher) NLO efficiency by using low μ with high Ep scheme in contradiction to high μ with low Ep could be recommended also due to eventually better PO stability.

Study of charge carrier transport in organic electroluminescent devices, organic photovoltaic devices, and organic field-effect transistors is one of the most important points. In order to realize comparable electron and hole transport in thin organic films with electrodes the energy structure of such devices are of great importance. In this work, we have studied electrical properties and energy structure of two carbazole derivatives.
The energy gap of two carbazole derivatives 1 and 2 in thin film is obtained. The energy gap characterisized by threshold energy of photoconductivity quantum efficiency is 2.90 eV and optical energy gap following from optical absorption spectrum is 3.3 eV for compound 1 in thin films. The values of the surface potential characterisizing ionization potential in solid state (hole conducting energy level) are 5.17 eV for compound 1 and 5.19 eV for compound
2. The values of work function of ITO, Au, Cu and Pd electrodes are energetically close to conductivity level of holes (Eh) and holes injection dominates from electrodes. In these thin films local trapping states of holes are situated at holes conducting level. When electrode is Al layer the local shallow trapping states for electrons at Et = 0.10 eV for compound 1 and at Et = 0.18 eV for compound 2 are determined This work is supported by ERAF Project Nr. 2DP/184.108.40.206.0/10/APIA/VIAA/010 and LatvianLithuanian-Taiwan joint project „Design, Synthesis and Studies of New Effective Materials for Organic Optoelectronics”
PYRANYLIDENE INDENE-1,3-DIONE DERIVATIVES AS AN AMORPHOUS RED
The organic light emitting diode (OLED) has a promising applications in flat panel displays and novel light sources. So far the OLED structures have mostly been made by thermal evaporation in vacuum. An alternative approach is to use small molecules which form amorphous (glassy) structure from solutions. Such compounds can be used in the ink-jet printing technologies and result in reducing the OLED prices. In this paper, we present an original red fluorescent organic compound 2-(2-(4-(bis(2-(trityloxy)ethyl)amino)styryl)-6methyl-4H-pyran-4-ylidene)-1H-indene-1,3(2H)-dione (ZWK1) and it derivative 2-(2,6-bis(4bis(2-(trityloxy)ethyl) amino)styryl)-4H-pyran-4-ylidene)-1H-indene-1,3(2H)-dione (ZWK2) where methyl group replaced with 4-substituted-styryl group. This change could improve the formation of glassy structure.
Electroluminescence spectrum of ZWK1 (line) and ZWK2 (doted line) The thickness of the electroluminescent layer in the device was optimized to the higher power efficiency and obtained: ITO/PEDOT:PSS(40nm)/ZWK1(95nm) /LiF(1nm)/Al(100nm) and ITO/PEDOT:PSS(40nm)/ZWK2(85nm)/LiF(1nm)/Al(100nm). The maximum of electroluminescence spectra for the device with ZWK1 compound was 667 nm wich correspond to the CIE coordinates x=0.65 and y=0.34. The power and luminance efficiency at the luminance of 100 cd/m2 is 0.63 lm/W and 1.78 cd/A, respectively. Adding additional 4substituted-styryl group to ZWK1 molecule shifted maximum of EL spectra to red region (705 nm) and decreased the efficiencies by one order.
