Dielectric properties of organic light-emitting diodes were investigated using ITO/Alq3/Al device. In spite of various advantages in organic light-emitting diodes, a fundamental study on physical properties is not yet sufficient. Dielectric properties are used for studying fundamental physical properties of materials through a frequency-dependent response. We have investigated magnitude and phase of impedance, electrical conductivity, and the dielectric loss depending on a bias-voltage variation using ITO/Alq3(60 nm)/Al device. The device shows a frequency-dependent response such that a major contribution is resistive below time constant and capacitive above time constant. Also, the device shows a voltage-dependent electrical conductivity in low-frequency region. A bulk resistance rapidly decreases as the frequency increases above 1 MHz. The dielectric loss shows that there appears an interfacial polarization in low-frequency region, and an orientational polarization in high-frequency region.
