Perovskite light-emitting diodes (LEDs) show great potential for next-generation lighting and display technology. Despite intensive studies on single-color devices, there are few reports on perovskite-based white LEDs (Pe-WLEDs). Here, an efficient Pe-WLED based on a blue perovskite and an orange phosphorescent emitter is reported for the first time. It is found that using a simple perovskite/phosphor bilayer emitting structure, there is inefficient energy transfer from the blue perovskite to the orange phosphor, leading to low efficiency and a significant color shift with driving voltage. We address this issue by introducing a quantum-well-like charge-confinement structure for enhancing carrier trapping and thus exciton formation in the phosphorescent emitter. As a result, a high external quantum efficiency of 10.81% is obtained. More interestingly, by tuning the dopant concentration of the phosphorescent emitter using this simple device structure, we can controllably get Pe-WLEDs with very stable white light for display applications or tunable color from warm white to daylight for lighting applications.
