Abstract

Improved outcoupling efficiency of organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) is demonstrated by incorporating a nanostructured indium tin oxide (NSITO) film between a conducting anode and a glass substrate. NSITO film was fabricated using rf-sputtering at oblique angle (85°). Significant reduction in refractive index and improved transmission of NSITO film was observed. OLEDs were then fabricated onto NSITO film to extract the ITO-glass waveguided modes. Extraction efficiency was enhanced by 80% without introducing any detrimental effects to operating voltage, current density, and angular invariance of emission spectra of OLEDs.
