Highly efficient and color-stable two-wavelength white organic light-emitting devices (WOLEDs) combining an orange phosphor [Ir (Cz-C F3)] and a sky blue fluorescent dye BUBD-1 are fabricated where the host singlet is resonant with the fluorophore singlet state and the host triplet is resonant with the phosphor triplet level. A thin layer of 1,3,5-tris [N -(phenyl)benzimidazole]benzene between the phosphorescent and the fluorescent regions confines both singlet and triplet excitons efficiently and suppress Dexter transfer of the phosphor excitons to the nonradiative triplet state of BUBD-1. The best device reaches peak efficiencies of 19.3 cdA and 11.1 lmW which are superior to common two-color all-fluorescent or all-phosphor WOLEDs.
