Abstract

To be legible in high-ambient light conditions, organic light-emitting-diode displays should be optically designed to have a minimal reflectance without significantly affecting their overall efficiency. We demonstrate the use of an anode consisting of a partially absorbing metal layer and a multilayer distributed Bragg reflector to simultaneously absorb rather than reflect incoming light and to take advantage of a weak microcavity effect in the diode to improve light outcoupling.
