Abstract

The extraction of guided modes from a 100 nm organic emission layer by compound binary gratings with multiple superimposed periods at different ratios is investigated. We measure angle-dependent photoluminescence from samples with double-period (350 and 450 nm), triple-period (350, 400, and 450 nm), and multiperiod (350, 400, 450, and 500 nm) gratings and show that each period component produces two outcoupling features due to first-order Bragg scattering of the TE0 guided mode. The averaged angular color change is reduced by up to a factor of 11 compared to a single-period grating structuring.
