We report a demonstration of the integration of individual polymer-based light emitting devices of three different colors on the same substrate. Orange, green, and blue color devices are sequentially fabricated on the same indium-tin oxide (ITO) coated glass substrate coated with a patterned insulator on the ITO, by the spin coating of polymer thin films, the vacuum deposition of top metal contacts, and the patterning of polymer thin film by plasma etching, using the top metal contacts as the self-aligned etching mask. The devices exhibit no degradation of device characteristics due to the integration processing compared to discrete devices on separate substrates. This demonstration shows a new path towards the fabrication of high performance low-cost full-color organic flat panel displays.
