We demonstrate a man-made lighting device of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) capable of yielding a sunlight-style illumination with various daylight chromaticities, whose color temperature ranges between 2300 and 8200 K, fully covering those of the entire daylight at different times and regions. The OLED employs a device architecture capable of simultaneously generating all the emissions required to form a series of daylight chromaticities. The wide color-temperature span may be attributed to that the recombination core therein can easily be shifted along the different emissive zones simply by varying the applied voltage via the use of a thin carrier-modulating layer.
