This paper demonstrates the fabrication of a channel-waveguide structure with an organic electroluminescent thin film. It shows electroluminescence in layers that are thick enough to support confined waveguide modes by applying somewhat higher voltages (20-30 V) compared with thin-film surface-emitting devices (<5 V). Fabrication of new single-mode channel-waveguide structures on silicon with HTL, molecularly-doped EML and ETL layers is in progress and is reported.
