Phosphorescent light-emitting transistors, in which light emission from singlet and triplet energy levels is harvested using solution-processed materials (see figure), are presented. While a green phosphorescent dendrimer exhibits an external quantum efficiency of 0.45% at 480 cd m(-2), a red polymer/phosphorescent small-molecule blend produces a brightness exceeding 30 cd m(-2) with a relatively high hole mobility of 2.5 x 10(-2) cm(2) V-1 s(-1).
