We demonstrate a white organic light-emitting device where individual red, green, and blue (R, G, and B) phosphorescent organic light-emitting devices are vertically stacked and electrically interconnected by a compound MoO3/Li-doped charge generation layer. For the order of B, G, and R cells positioned relative to the indium tin oxide anode, the device yields a peak total external quantum efficiency (EQE) and power efficiency (PE) of ηext=(36±2)% at a current density of J=82 μA/cm2 and ηp=21±1 lm/W at J=17 μA/cm2, respectively. The EQE and PE of the device roll off to (32±2)% and 13±1 lm/W at 1000 cd/m2, corresponding to J=2 mA/cm2. At this luminance, the device shows Commission Internationale de L’Eclairage chromaticity coordinates of (0.45, 0.36) and a color rendering index of 63.
