Abstract

The decay time of an exciton depends on the coupling between the dipole oscillator and the optical environment in which it is placed. For an organic light-emitting device this environment is determined by the thin-film layer structure. The radiative decay competes with nonradiative decay channels and in this way influences the luminescent efficiency and the external quantum efficiency of the device. We describe a method to estimate the dependency of the exciton decay time and the luminescent efficiency on the thin-film stack and validate the results experimentally.
