A major constraint in the development of organic devices is the use of indium tin oxide as bottom electrode, because it is expensive, low, means high temperature process, polymer degradation and leads to ways to lower the optical out-coupling efficiency of the device.

To solve these problems, researchers at the Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO) are working on the possibility of using thin nickel layer in place of indium tin oxide as anode for bottom-emitting organic light-emitting diodes.
