In fact, only a small fraction (20%) of the total ptotons generated inside the OLED are generally useable, how to extract the photons from the OLED is an important topic nowadays. Two-dimensional photonic crystal (PC) structures are fabricated by using NSL technique in this study, and the two-dimensional photonic crystal structures is acted as a scattering medium to extract the light to the outer medium efficiency, in order to enhance the external quantum efficiency of the OLED.
A large area (PET) substrate contained single-layer polystyrene nanosphere arrays with hexagonal close-packed structures, and then attached it on OLED acted as a brightness enhancement film to enhance the luminance of the devices. On the other hand, using the NSL as a template combined with the reactive ion etching (RIE) and thin film deposition techniques to fabricate metallic network nanostructures with different sizes and thicknesses on ITO/glass substrates. The out-coupling of light could be enhanced due to the roughened surface reduces internal light reflection and scatters the light outward caused the coherent scattering of the internally trapped light.
