A series of efficient and bright white light-emitting diodes were fabricated using the blends of two fluorene-derived fluorescent dyes, (4,7-bis-(9,9,9′,9′-tetrahexyl-9H,9′H-[2,2′]bifluoren-7-yl)-benzo[1,2,5]thiadiazole) (FFBFF-emits green) and (4,7-bis-[5-(9,9-dihexyl-9H-fluoren-2-yl)-thiophen-2-yl]-benzo[1,2,5]thiadiazole) (FTBTF-emits red) in an efficient blue-emitting polyfluorene-derived copolymer (poly[(9,9-bis(4-di(4-n-butylphenyl)aminophenyl))]-stat-(9,9-bis(4-(5-(4-tert-butylphenyl)-2-oxadiazolyl)-phenyl))-stat-(9,9-di-n-octyl)fluorene) (PF-TPA-OXD). The resulting white light-emitting device reaches a maximum external quantum efficiency of 0.82% and a maximum brightness of 12 900 cd/m2 at 12 V. The Commission Internationale d’Énclairage chromaticity coordinates of the device remain very close to that of pure white emission at a relatively broad bias range from 6 V (x=0.36, y=0.37) to 12 V (x=0.34, y=0.34).
