ABSTRACT
A reduction of the operating voltage is achieved for an organic light-emitting diode containing a corrugated photonic crystal structure fabricated by the etching of an indium-tin-oxide anode layer. This is due to a partial reduction in the thickness of the organic layer. The light extraction efficiency can be also improved due to the diffraction of confined light by the photonic crystal effect. The voltage reduction is demonstrated in combination with an improvement in the luminance efficiency at constant current for the fabricated device.
