  • Publication number: 20210313520
    Abstract: Provided is a light-emitting device that can have sufficient device characteristics even with a smaller number of stacked layers in an EL layer and a thicker light-emitting layer than a conventional one by using, as an organic compound used for the EL layer of the light-emitting device, a material that can increase not only a property of carrier transport to the light-emitting layer but also a property of carrier injection from an electrode.

  • Patent number: 10510806
    Abstract: A highly reliable light-emitting element which can keep favorable characteristics throughout long-time driving is provided. In addition, a light-emitting element with high color purity and high emission efficiency is provided. Furthermore, a light-emitting device having a long lifetime in which the light-emitting element is used is provided. Moreover, an electronic device and a lighting device each of which has a long lifetime are provided. In the light-emitting element including an EL layer between a pair of electrodes, the EL layer has a stacked-layer structure of a first light-emitting layer, a second light-emitting layer, and a third light-emitting layer. The light-emitting layer includes an electron-transport material, a hole-transport material, and a light-emitting material. Furthermore, light emitted from the first light-emitting layer and light emitted from the third light-emitting layer have the same color and each have a longer wavelength than light emitted from the second light-emitting layer.
