In this paper, a significant enhancement in current efficiency of a red tandem organic light-emitting diode (OLED), which is based on an organic photovoltaic-type charge generation layer (CGL) of fullerene carbon 60/copper phthalocyanine, is introduced. The CGL can absorb a part of photons, radiated from emission zone, then form excitons, which are dissociated into free charges. It induces in lower driven voltage and better efficiency of tandem OLED. Compared with single emitter-unit OLED and tandem OLED with bulk heterojunction CGL, the luminous efficiency boosts remarkably with increasing current density and shows rather slower roll-off. Our results demonstrate that the organic photovoltaic heterojunction, consists of two matched n- and p-type organic semiconductors, is a promising CGL for tandem OLEDs with high efficiency.
