We present simple p-i-n structures with double-emitting and mixed-emitting layers for highly efficient phosphorescent green devices. Using a wide band-gap hole transporting material of 4,4′4″-tris(N-carbazolyl)-triphenylamine and a wide band-gap electron transporting material of bis[2-(2-hydroxyphenyl)-pyridine]beryllium, the bilayered p-i-n structure with no heterointerface barriers has been realized. A very low onset voltage value of 2.4 V corresponding to the energy of 2.4 eV of green electroluminescence, which is close to the photon energy of dopant emitting molecules (2.3–2.4 eV), is achieved in this simple p-i-n device configuration. Maximum current- and power-efficiency values of 53.3 cd/A and 61.4 lm/W and low rolloff of current efficiency (6%) are demonstrated in the simple p-i-n green phosphorescent devices, promising for the practical and economical high brightness applications.
