The fabrication of organic light-emitting devices (OLEDs) from semiconducting polymer nanospheres (SPNs) deposited from aqueous dispersions is described. It is found that the active device layer consists of a homogeneous single layer of light-emitting SPNs. The OLEDs exhibit an electroluminescence onset at the SPN energy gap, which can be attributed to field-enhanced charge-carrier injection at the nanostructured Al cathode.
