Direct fabrication of organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) and organic photodetectors (OPDs) on polymeric substrates, i.e., polymeric waveguide substrates to form flexile optical integrated devices is demonstrated. The OELD and OPD were fabricated by organic molecular beam deposition (OMBD) technique on a polymeric or a glass substrate, for comparison. The device fabricated on a polymeric substrate shows similar device characteristics to that on a glass substrate. Optical signals of faster than 100 MHz have been created by applying pulsed voltage directly to the OLED utilizing diamine derivative, or rubrene or porphine doped in 8-hydoxyquinolinum aluminum derivatives, as an emissive layer. Electrical signals are successively converted to optical signals for optical transmission of moving picture signals with OLED fabricated on a polymeric waveguide. OPDs utilizing phthalocyanines derivatives with superlattice structure provide increased pulse response with input optical signals, and the OPD with the cutoff frequency of more than 5 MHz has been realized.
