RCWA and FDTD modeling of light emission from internally structured OLEDs

RCWA and FDTD modeling of light emission from internally structured OLEDs

Optics Express 22 Suppl 3: A589-A600

We report on the fabrication and simulation of a green OLED with an Internal Light Extraction (ILE) layer. The optical behavior of these devices is simulated using both Rigorous Coupled Wave Analysis (RCWA) and Finite Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) methods. Results obtained using these two different techniques show excellent agreement and predict the experimental results with good precision. By verifying the validity of both simulation methods on the internal light extraction structure we pave the way to optimization of ILE layers using either of these methods.
