We report on the fabrication and device properties of light-emitting resonant cavity conjugated-polymer diodes. The microcavity structures were constructed using a dielectric mirror, an indium-tin-oxide anode, a green light-emitting polyfluorene blend, and a metal (cathode) mirror. The best performance was obtained for a composite calcium-aluminum cathode, that combines high reflectivity with a low workfunction. This structure emitted electroluminescence with a linewidth of 12 nm and a maximum brightness of 300 cd m-2 at a bias of 35 V with an efficiency of 0.95 cd A-1. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
