A comprehensive analysis is given on the modifications of the exciton lifetime and internal quantum efficiency (int) for organic light-emitting devices (OLEDs). A linear relation is derived between the exciton lifetime and int, which is difficult to measure directly. The internal quantum efficiency can thus be estimated easily through the measurement of the exciton lifetime. The exciton lifetimes for OLEDs with weak or strong microcavity are studied experimentally and theoretically. The modification of the exciton lifetime is well explained through the microcavity effect and surface plasmon resonance. An excellent agreement between the experimental and theoretical results is achieved.
