Fast sub-nanoliter volume measurement with non-contact are desirable for use in the fabrication of organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). We set up a digital holographic microscope (DHM), which included rotating ground glass (RGG), for measuring the liquid volume in sub-nanometer OLEDs. The DHM was based on an interferometric principle that allowed non-contact monitoring. We measured the volume of a dye liquid in the range of sub-picoliters by using the DHM. The DHM method prevents contamination and loss of media. Therefore, the proposed method is well suited for high precision and fast non-contact online monitoring of the dye liquid's volume in the microdispensing process for various applications.
