Light emitting diodes (LEDs) were prepared using ternary blends of block copolymers emitting in the blue (I and II) and green (III) regime. These blends were studied in terms of their absorbance, photoluminescence (PL), and electroluminescence (EL) spectra. The PL spectra in dilute solution and in the solid state were compared. Forster energy transfer from I and II to III was studied in the solid state. The EL device made using a ternary blend with the ratio (1 : 1 : 1) showed the highest EL quantum efficiency. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) measurements have been made to investigate the phase separation in these copolymer blends. (c) 2006 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
