We investigated surface plasmon-waveguide hybrid resonances for enhancement of light emission in polymer light-emitting diodes (PLEDs). Hybrid waveguide-plasmon resonances in the visible range for waveguide mode and near IR range for surface plasmons were observed by incorporation of hexagonal Ag dot arrays. Considerable overlap between the emission wavelength of the PLEDs and the waveguide mode by an Ag dot array with a lattice constant of 500 nm was observed. Because of enhanced light extraction by Bragg scattering of waveguide modes, photoluminescence (PL) and electroluminescence (EL) were increased by 70% and 50%, respectively.
