Hybrid materials composed of polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes (POSS) and a polyphenylene vinylene (PPV) derivative were fabricated and characterized by optical and surface spectroscopy. The hybrid thin films have similar optical properties as the pristine polymer but contributions of the POSS are evidenced in infrared spectroscopy. Organic light emitting diodes using the hybrid material as an emitter clearly showed an improvement of the electrical characteristics and the efficiency of the devices as compared to those using the pristine polymer. The effects of POSS incorporation to the polymer are discussed via the obtained results.
