Paper Abstract

To realize high-efficiency organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs), it is essential to boost out-coupling efficiency. Here we review our latest reports upon light manipulation for OLEDs by integrating a dual-side bio-inspired deterministic quasi-periodic moth’s eye nanostructure with broadband anti-reflective and quasi-omnidirectional properties. Light out-coupling efficiency of OLEDs with stacked triple emission units is over 2 times that of a conventional device, resulting in drastic increase in external quantum efficiency and current efficiency to 119.7% and 366 cd A-1 without introducing spectral distortion and directionality. Theoretical calculations furthermore clarify that the improved device performance is primarily attributed to the effective extraction of the waveguide and surface plasmonic modes of the confined light over all the emission wavelengths and viewing-angles.
