We report strong photoluminescence from a top-emitting organic light-emitting structure where emission takes place through a thin (55 nm) silver film. We show that this emission is mediated via coupled surface plasmon-polariton modes. Our results show that the addition of a dielectric grating to otherwise planar structures, such as surface-emitting organic light-emitting diodes, may offer a way to increase the external efficiency of top-emitting organic light-emitting diodes.
