Organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) which consist of 8-hydroxyquinoline aluminum (Alq3) and diamine derivative (TPD) were directly fabricated on a polymer waveguide device. Polymer waveguide device consists of deuterated methacrylate polymer core and UV cured epoxy resin cladding. One of the edges of the polymer waveguide was cut in 45 degree, which serves as a mirror, in order to introduce the output light from OLED to the waveguide. Emission and transmission characteristics of the OLED directly fabricated on a polymer waveguide are discussed as a light source for the polymer based integrated devices
