Organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) based on thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) exhibit a high upconversion rate from non-emissive triplet to emissive singlet states due to a a small energy splitting Δ EST between the respective states. Electroluminescence and electrically detected magnetic resonance (ELDMR, EDMR) are suitable methods to investigate such devices as they connect spin-dependent processes with optical and electrical properties. Both techniques were previously used by us to reveal excitation pathways of intermediate excited states in donor:acceptor based TADF OLEDs. However continous wave (cw) experiments do not always allow to fully explain the origin of the observed magnetic resonance effects since different spin- and time-dependent processes may result in indistinguishable spectra. Therefore, we apply pulsed EDMR (pEDMR) to donor:acceptor based TADF OLEDs and by varying the parameters of these experiments such as pulse intensity and length we explore the genesis of TADF emission with respect to interspin coupling and spin relaxation time (T1).
