We developed a generic platform to pattern combinatorial functional layers composed of different classes of organic materials using a repetitive lift-off method based on a chemically compatible sacrificial layer (SL) for organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). The essential features come from the chemically compatible SL of a fluorous-polymer that can be generated by laser-inscription or transfer-printing. The precise registration of lateral patterns of different materials was achieved on a single substrate through a series of SL-assisted lift-off processes. The chemical compatibility of the SL and the stability of the light-emitting characteristics were shown in a fluorous-solvent treated monochrome OLEDs.
