Abstract

The interference effects generated in a bottom-emitting electroluminescent device fabricated on a polymer underlayer introduced with the aim of improving the anode roughness have been studied. The analysis of the interference fringes at different detection angles and the spatial coherence demonstrates that this phenomenon is due to multiple internal reflections that propagate in the polymer layer. This effect can be eliminated by modifying the polymer thickness and the incidence angle of the electromagnetic radiation at the anode–polymer interface. Inkjet etching technology is adopted for microcavities-shaped polymer structuring to destroy the resonator effect of the optical cavity.
