Organic electroluminescence is considered as the most competitive alternative for the future solid-state displays and lighting techniques owing to many advantages such as self-luminescence, high efficiency, high contrast, high color rendering index, ultra-thin thickness, transparency, flat and flexibility, etc. The development of high-performance organic electroluminescence has become the continuing focus of research. In this personal account, a brief overview of representative achievements in our study on the design of highly efficient novel organic light-emitting materials (including fluorescent materials, phosphorescent iridium(III) complexes and conjugated polymers bearing phosphorescent iridium(III) complex) and high-performance device structures together with working principles are given. At last, we will give some perspectives on this fascinating field, and also try to provide some potential directions of research on the basis of the current stage of organic electroluminescence.
