Paper Abstract

Organic electroluminescent diodes (OLED) were fabricated on a polymeric optical waveguide for use as an optical interconnector in data communication systems. The OLED were fabricated on an ITO sputtered polymer waveguide with a 45 degree mirror by vacuum deposition. The OLEDs, with an emission peak center at 520 nm consist of diamine derivative as a hole transporting layer and tris(8-hydroxyquinoline) aluminum (Alq3) as an emissive layer. We estimated the propagation losses of the waveguide to be 1.35 dB/cm at 520 nm. However, it decreases as increasing the wavelength of the light source and is estimated as 0.37 dB/cm at the wavelength of 614 nm. The optical pulse of more than 5 Mb/s has been obtained from the OLED with Alq3 and diamine derivative. We discuss the properties of the OLED for the light source for polymeric integrated devices.
