The electric and optical impulse response of two types of High Speed OLED (HSOLED) driven by ultra-short electrical pulses is investigated. The two HSOLED were designed and manufactured to be characterized in the presence of electrical pulses ranging from 10ns to 100ns in duration and a repetition rate of 10Hz. The impact of the OLED geometry and the fabrication process on the time response is investigated. This is the first time that an optimized HSOLED exhibits an electrical time response as low as 2.1±0.6 ns and also shorter than the device optical decay time (9.8±0.2ns). Moreover, the HSOLED measured current density reaches 3.0 kA/cm2, the highest value reported in the literature, with state-of-the-art electroluminescence of 12W/cm2.
