Abstract

Improved outcoupling of light into substrate modes of an organic LED (OLED) by an ultra-low index of refraction ( n = 1.15 ) , porous SiO 2 grid (UltraLIG) fabricated using glancing-angle deposition is demonstrated. Outcoupling into the substrate for electrophosphorescent tris(2-phenylpyridine) iridium [ Ir ( ppy ) 3 ] -based OLEDs grown on substrates with the UltraLIG is increased by 48% over a conventional device at a luminance of 100   cd / m 2 . With efficient light outcoupling at the substrate–air interface, the UltraLIG devices attain η EQE = 22.5 % and η P = 64   lm / W at their peak efficiencies, a nearly threefold increase over an analogous conventional OLED.
