Summary

The use of differently substituted polysilanes as hole transport layers (HTL) in organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) was investigated. While hydrogen-substituted polysilanes deteriorate the diode behavior amino-substituted polysilanes lead to a significant improvement of the diode performance compared to a single-layer OLED.
