We demonstrate the improvement of an indium tin oxide anode contact to an organic light emitting device via oxygen plasma treatment. Enhanced hole-injection efficiency improves dramatically the performance of single-layer doped-polymer devices: the drive voltage drops from ≫20 to ≪10 V, the external electroluminescence quantum efficiency (backside emission only) increases by a factor of 4 (from 0.28% to 1%), a much higher drive current can be applied to achieve a much higher brightness (maximum brightness ∼10,000 cd/m2 at 1000 mA/cm2), and the forward-to-reverse bias rectification ratio increases by orders of magnitude (from 102 to 106–107). The lifetime of the device is also enhanced by two orders of magnitude. © 1997 American Institute of Physics.
