Thermal degradation near operating temperatures occurs at the metal-organic interface if the polymer T g is near the operating temperature. The degradation is reversed by peeling off and reapplying the metal electrode. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy measurements reveal a larger amount of polymer adheres to electrodes peeled from aged devices than electrodes peeled from fresh devices. Using an inverted device suppresses degradation.
