Abstract

In this paper, design and simulation of conductive nanometric multilayer systems are discussed and optimum thickness of Ag and ZnS layers are calculated to reach simultaneously to high transmittance and low sheet resistance. The conductive transparent ZnS/Ag/ZnS/Ag/ZnS (ZAZAZ) nanometric multilayer systems are deposited on glass substrates at room temperature by a thermal evaporation method. The electrical, optical, and structural properties of these multilayers, such as sheet resistance, optical transmittance, and the root-mean-square surface roughness are obtained. High quality nanometric multilayer systems with sheet resistance of 2.7Ω/sq and the optical transmittance of 75.5% are obtained for the ZAZAZ system. Organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) were fabricated and tested on the ZAZAZ anode. The ZAZAZ multilayer anode based OLED shows the performance comparable to that of the indium-tin oxide anode based OLED.
