Organic and polymer light emitting diodes (OLED/PLEDs) have become widely available and are used for replacing inorganic light emitting diodes as they are less expensive and provide many opportunities in regard to structural placement on application in displays [1]. Poly[(9,9- dioctylfluorenyl-2,7-diyl) – co – (1,4- phenylene)] (F8P) is a blue-green light emitting polymer which has great potential in display applications. This F8P is one of the families of polyfluorene’s (PF) group, of which its light emitting mechanisms are not yet fully understood. In this work the optical characteristics of F8P on ITO coated glass have been investigated using SEM, PL and Raman spectroscopy.
