The authors demonstrate a vertical organic light emitting transistor achieved by stacking a capacitor on top of an organic light emitting diode (OLED). This unique device has dual functions, emitting light as an OLED and switching current as a transistor. When the capacitor is under bias, the storage charges on the thin electrode shared by two cells modulate the charge injection of the OLED active cell, hence controlling the current flow and subsequently tuning the light emission. Due to the vertical integration, this device can be operated at low voltage, which provides a solution for OLED display applications.
