Broadband Light Extraction from White Organic Light-Emitting Devices by Employing Corrugated Metallic Electrodes with Dual Periodicity



A dual-periodic corrugation consisting of two sets of gratings with different periods to realize a broadband light extraction in white organic light-emitting diodes (WOLEDs) is shown. A 37 % enhancement in current efficiency and 48 % enhancement in the external quantum efficiency compared to those of the conventional planar devices have been obtained. Besides the much improved efficiency, the dual-periodic corrugated WOLEDs exhibit satisfying viewing characteristics.
