ABSTRACT
Organic light-emitting diodes were fabricated on a 125-μm-thick polyethylene terephthalate substrate covered with 100 nm indium tin oxide. The luminance-current-voltage performance and the emission spectrum of the devices are investigated in the bent state under mechanical stress at different bending radii. Down to a curvature of 15 mm, no significant decrease in the device performance is found compared to the relaxed state, as well as to conventional devices on glass substrates.
