A guest-host approach was used to fabricate a one-layer organic light emitting diode (OLED). The thick film ink approach allows the two-dimensional OLED to be processed using traditional methods such as silk-screen printing. The I-V-L characteristics of the polymer thick film (PTF)-OLED were studied as a function of the device chemical compositions and physical configurations. Different polymers, hole and electron transporters, and emitters at different weight ratios were studied for its composition dependence. Device configuration also plays a significant role on its overall performance. Dependence on film thickness, electrode type, and the usage of additional charge injection layers were also investigated. The simplified one-layer device allows a straightforward interpretation for the charge-transport and recombination phenomena which shed light for its future improvement.
