The syntheses, as well as the photophysical and electrochemical characterization, of two novel BODIPY-porphyrin dyads and their first application in lighting schemes are provided. The benefits ascribed to their unique features, namely (i) a good electronic alignment, (ii) a remarkable efficient energy transfer, and (iii) excellent film morphology, lead to deep-red lighting devices with stabilities of around 1000 h and efficiencies of 0.13 Lm W-1.
