We investigated the performance of yellow-green organic light-emitting devices (OLEDs) based on a novel material (E)-2-(2-(9-ethyl-9H-carbazol-3-yl)vinyl) quinolato-zinc (CzHQZn) with an emitting/hole-transporting layer as an acceptor. These devices were fabricated as follows: ITO/2T-NATA(30 nm)/CBP: 6% Ir(ppy)3: w CzHQZn (20 nm)/Alq3(50 nm)/LiF/Al (ITO: indium-tin oxide, 2T-NATA: 4,4',4''-{N,N-(2-naphthyl)-N-phenylamino}-triphenylamine, CBP: 4, 4-N,N'-dicarbazole-biphenyl, Ir(ppy)3: factris (2-phenylpyridine) iridium, Alq3: tris(8-quinolinolato) aluminum; w: mass fraction of CzHQZn). After studying the electroluminescence (EL) characteristics of these devices at different doping concentrations (w=5%, 10%, 12%, 15%), yellow-green OLEDs with 10% of CzHQZn were obtained with Commission International de L'Eclairage coordinates of (0.4045, 0.5113). The maximum luminance was 16110 cd·m-2 at an applied voltage of 11 V and the maximum luminous efficiency was 2.19 cd·A-1 at an applied voltage of 7 V with a maximumexternal quantumefficiency of 0.775%.
