White organic light-emitting devices (WOLEDs) were fabricated utilizing blue and red emitting organic light-emitting devices and a color conversion layer (CCL) made of yttrium aluminum garnet (YAG:Ce3+) phosphors embedded into polymethylmethacrylate. The good color balance for the color conversion of the WOLEDs was achieved utilizing 20-nm blue and 10-nm red OLEDs. The electroluminescence spectrum for the fabricated device showed a white color consisting of the blue color from the 4,4-bis(2,2-diphenylethen-1-yl)bipheny layer, the red color from the tris-(8-hydroxyquinolinato) aluminum: 4-(dicyanomethylene)-2-methyl-6-(p-dimethylaminostyryl)-4H-pyran layer, and the green color from the YAG:Ce3+ phosphor. The Commission Internationale de l'Eclairage coordinates of the WOLEDs slightly shifted from (0.25, 0.23) of the blue and red emission OLEDs without phosphors to (0.34, 0.35) of the OLEDs with green phosphors, indicative of the pure white color. WOLEDs with a CCL exhibited three wavelength white emissions with a color rendering index of 86.
