Paper Abstract

We fabricated organic electroluminescent diodes (OELD) for use as an light source for optical interconnect in data communication systems. The OELDs consists of indium-tin-oxide (ITO) coated substrates, hole-transporting layer of (alpha) -NPD (4,4'-bis[N-(naphthyl)-N-phenyl-amino]-biphenyl) emissive layer of rubrene (5,6,11,12-tetraphenylnaphthacene) doped Alq3 (8-hydroxyquinoline aluminum) and silver containing magnesium cathode. The OLED was fabricated by deposition deposition technique. These OELDs, with an emission peak center at 560 nm, was fabricated with a vacuum deposition technique. The optical pulses of faster than 30 Mb/s have been generated from the OELD. We discuss the emission characteristics and the pulse response characteristics of the OLED as regards it use as a light source for polymeric waveguides.
