Abstract

High contrast blue organic light-emitting diodes were fabricated using an inorganic multilayer of NPB (700 Å)/MADN (200 Å)/Alq3 (300 Å)/LiF (10 Å)/Al (70 Å)/ZnSe (300 Å)/Al (1000 Å). The optical and electrical characteristics were measured and compared to conventional organic light-emitting devices (OLEDs) and OLEDs with polarizers. OLEDs with the metal multilayer cathodes had an improved contrast ratio of 1351 compared to 1041 for OLEDs with polarizers. In addition, the multilayer OLEDs had a low turn-on voltage of 3.5 V due to energy band fitting of ZnSe with Al and the electron transport layer.
