Abstract


Theoretical considerations expect an increase of outcoupling efficiency of up to 70%. Experimental results yield an increase of outcoupling efficiency of about 22%. A software model based on raytracing to simulate light outcoupling from OLEDs through a scattering layer is introduced to gain a deeper understanding of the light extraction mechanism. We found that the scattering anisotropy factor g determined using the Henyey-Greenstein phase function and the effective absorbance of the OLED device have strong impact on outcoupling efficiency.
