Paper Abstract

We present the design and fabrication of miniaturized light sources for micro-optical systems using organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs). These devices can be integrated on a micro-optical table (MOT) using various backplanes. Acceptable angular uniformity of emitted radiance, and a brightness of more than 30,000 cd/m2 can be readily achieved with OLEDs having areas ranging from 0.0004 cm2 to 0.0363 cm2.
