Direct fabrication of organic light emitting diodes (OLED) on a polymeric substrate, i.e., polymeric waveguide substrate to form a flexile optical integrated devices has been realized. The OELD was fabricated by organic molecular beam deposition (OMBD) technique on a polymeric substrate and a glass substrate, for comparison. The device fabricated on a polymeric substrate shows similar device characteristics to that on a glass substrate. Optical signal of faster than 100 MHz has been created by applying pulsed voltage directly to the OLED with emissive layers utilizing rubrene or porphine doped in 8-hydoxyquinolinum aluminum derivatives. Optical signal transmission with OLED fabricated on a polymeric waveguide with optical connectors has been successfully realized. Optical photo detectors (OPD) utilizing phthalocyanine derivatives with superlattice structure provide increased pulse response with input optical signals, and the OPD with 5 MHz of cut-off frequency has been realized with superlattice structure under reverse bias voltage to the OPD.
