In this work we demonstrate the possibility to realize a novel unconventional ITO-free organic light emitting diode (OLED) utilizing a photonic polymeric electrode. Combining electron beam lithography and a plasma etching process to partially structure the highly conductive poly(3,4 ethylenedioxythiophene):poly(styrene sulfonate) (PEDOT:PSS) it is possible to realize an embedded photonic crystal (PC) structure. The realized PC-anode drastically reduces the light trapped in the OLED, demonstrating the possibility to eliminate further process stages and making it easier to use this technology even on rollable and flexible substrates. © 2013 IOP Publishing Ltd.
