This study shows that, after UV-irradiation in air or vacuum, conductivity and work function of ITO and In2O3 come back to their initial values in a few hours or minutes. In addition to this instability, one of the reported drawbacks of ITO is the indium diffusion into the organic layers of operating LED, leading to performance degradation. So, we have reconsidered ITO as transparent anode and explored alternatives such as NiO.

Abstract

This study shows that, after UV-irradiation in air or vacuum, conductivity and work function of ITO and In2O3 come back to their initial values in a few hours or minutes. In addition to this instability, one of the reported drawbacks of ITO is the indium diffusion into the organic layers of operating LED, leading to performance degradation. So, we have reconsidered ITO as transparent anode and explored alternatives such as NiO.
