We report a study of the effect of lateral microstructure on photoluminescence from conjugated polymers. A strong modification of the photoluminescence is observed which we assign to scattering of waveguide modes into the forward direction. This may provide a method of enhancing the efficiency of conjugated polymer light emitting diodes.
