Abstract

In this paper, the optical and electrical pulse responses of an optimized high-speed organic light-emitting diode (OLED) is investigated as a function of the pulse duration. The original design is based on the coplanar waveguide electrodes that are implemented on a transparent and conductive oxide thin film. The designed electrodes with reduced serial resistances (13 Ω) allow to maximize the pulse energy delivery and to feed the organic device with short electrical pulses of few nanoseconds for the first time. This is achieved by designing the electrodes to have 50-Ω characteristic impedance, thanks to microwave techniques, and by implementing small values of capacitance (4.5 pF). The experimental results demonstrate μ-OLED electrical and optical responses to electrical excitation pulses as short as 2.5 ns, for the first time, and state-of-the-art current densities above 1.7 kA/cm2. Moreover, and rather unexpectedly, the developed characterization procedure to extract the reported results demonstrated the first direct measurement of the electroluminescence lifetime of organic materials in the nanosecond time scale.
