Organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) which consists of 8-hydroxyquinoline aluminum (Alq3) and diamine derivative (TPD) were directly fabricated on a polymer waveguide device. Polymer waveguide device consists of deuterated methacrylate polymer core and UV cured epoxy resin cladding. One of the edges of the polymer waveguide was cut in 45 degree, which was served as a mirror, in order to introduce the output light from OLED to the waveguide. Indium-tin oxide (ITO) or semi-transparent aluminum metal was deposited onto the polymer waveguide, which served as anode. The OLED was directly fabricated by evaporation technique at the edge of a waveguide, whose edge served as a mirror.
Emission and transmission characteristics of the light from red-light-emitting OLED are also discussed as a light source for the polymer based waveguide with low transmission loss.
