A self-assembled microarray (SAMA) of organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) has been fabricated using self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) by microcontact printing (μCP). The hydrophobic methyl-terminated SAMs modify the surface properties of the substrates to become hydrophobic, i.e., with low surface energy. Thus, the hydrophobic SAMs pattern, by the μCP, can be applied to form SAMAs on the patterned SAMs since the difference of the local surface energy modifies the patterns on the substrates. In this study, octadecyltrichlorosilane based hydrophobic methyl-terminated SAMs have been used and the fabricated OLEDs, with the SAMAs show local light emissions on the micron scale with efficient performances.
