Abstract

The simple ways for creating buckled structures to enhance the light extraction from OLED devices have been investigated. The buckling instability was observed when the ITO was deposited on the polymer-coated glass by sputtering. The textured surface of the ITO layer after buckling was characterized by an atomic force microscopy. The wavelength of the resulting buckled structure was a few microns in a size. The buckling was easily modified by adjusting the pressure of the argon gas during the sputter deposition of ITO layer. The buckled ITO layer was used for fabricating OLED devices. The reduction in the operating voltage for the OLED with the buckled ITO anode was observed. The current and power efficiencies for the OLED with the buckeld structure were 5% and 44% higher than those for the conventional OLED. The broader light distribution was observed in the OLED with buckling when the angular dependence of the light intensity was measured.
