A method of derivitization of electrode surfaces in small molecule or polymeric organic light emitting diodes (OLED) and display devices employing the same are presented whereby and assemblage of molecular wires are employed. The assemblage of molecular wires facilitates the transportation of electrical energy from an inorganic electrode, such as indium-tin-oxide or doped silica, to organic layers of compounds and composites/polymers, found in conventional OLED materials and construction. Thereby, devices made in accordance with the invention have dramatically improved work function characteristics including a dramatic increase in the external quantum efficiency. In addition, the molecular wire components further stabilize the mechanical properties of OLED materials at the wire OLED interface.
