Emission control: carbazole-based dendritic alkynylgold(III) complexes have been evaluated as phosphorescent emitters in organic light-emitting devices. The energy as well as the bathochromic shift of the emissions can be tuned effectively through a control of the dendrimer generation. The optimized devices show high current and external quantum efficiencies of up to 24.0 cd A(-1) and 7.8 %, respectively.
