Abstract

Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) are used almost exclusively for display purposes. Even when implemented as a sensing component, it is rarely in a manner that exploits the possible compliance of the OLED. Here it is shown that OLEDs can be integrated into compliant mechanical micro-devices making a new range of applications possible. A light-modulating pressure sensor is considered, whereby the OLED is integrated with a silicon membrane. It is shown that such devices have potential and advantages over current measurement techniques. An analytical model has been developed that calculates the response of the device. Ray tracing numerical simulations verify the theory and show that the design can be optimized to maximize the resolution of the sensor.
