By employing double emission layers (DELs) into blue phosphorescent organic light-emitting device (PHOLED), the device shows improved current efficiency by a factor of 1.8 as compared with that of device using single emission layer. Furthermore, by doping additional carrier-transporting material into DELs, the device shows only a slight efficiency roll off of 24% from low (1 mA/cm2 and 400 cd/m2) to high current density (40 mA/cm2 and 10 000 cd/m2). The dramatic improvement in device performances can be attributed to the formation of a broader carrier recombination zone and the elimination of carrier accumulation at the interface. A blue PHOLED with a current efficiency of 29.5 cd/A, a power efficiency of 21 lm/W, and a low driving voltage of 4.4 V with a Commission Internationale deL’Eclairage (CIEx,y) of (0.16, 0.35) at a practical brightness of 1000 cd/m2 can be achieved.
