Abstract

A novel BODIPY‐containing organic small molecule is synthesized and employed as a down‐converting layer on a commercial blue light‐emitting diode (LED). The resulting hybrid device demonstrates white‐light emission under low‐current operation, with color coordinates of (0.34, 0.31) and an efficacy of 13.6 lm/W; four times greater than the parent blue LED.
