The luminescence properties of multi-component, single layer organic light emitting diodes (OLED) containing modularity designed, chromophore-labeled dendrimers are described. Highly efficient Forster energy transfer from the donors on the surface to the acceptors/emitters at the dendrimers core was demonstrated through photoluminescence studies, both in solution and in the solid state. Analogous energy conveyance and emission processes were observed in two component, single layer OLEDs incorporating these dendrimers, resulting in exclusive emission from the coumarin and oligothiophene core dyes.
