    An important limiting factor for efficient white light emitting organic LEDs is the total internal reflection occurring at each interface. In a bottom emitting OLED light is trapped by reflection at the interface between the organic layers and glass substrate and at the interface between the glass substrate and air. We investigate the use of a grating at the glass substrate-air interface. In this paper we will discuss the developed 3D-simulation method and several important simulation results. Our simulation method shows that the grating extracts approximately 50 % more power in comparison with a planar device. These results are comparable with the us
