UV-ozone treated indium tin oxide (ITO) is used extensively in organic electronics. It is shown that UV-ozone treatment can cause potential threats leading to degradation of organic materials. In accelerated degradation tests, rubrene formed on an ITO-free region always shows stronger photoluminescence (PL) emission than a region with an ITO coating. The degradation mechanism for UV-ozone treated ITO is discussed based on the photoemission analysis and device studies.
