An extremely high degree of circularly polarized photoluminescence (CPPL) and electroluminescence (CPEL) (dissymmetry factor values: |gPL| = 0.72 and |gEL| = 1.13) are generated from twisted stacking of achiral conjugated polymer induced by nonemitting chiral dopant of high helical twisting power for the first time. Using a theoretical analysis incorporating the Stokes parameter, the twisting angle and birefringence of the aligned conjugated polymer, and the degree of linear polarization in the emitted light are found to make a roughly equal contribution to the degree of CPEL as to the degree of CPPL. Moreover, it is also found that the location of the recombination zone within the emitting layer is a crucial parameter for determining the difference in the dissymmetry factor between CPEL and CPPL. This result is applied to an organic light-emitting display to improve the luminous efficiency by 60%. Highly circularly polarized electroluminescence (|gEL| = 1.13) is generated from twisted stacking of achiral conjugated polymer induced by nonemitting chiral dopant of high helical twisting power. The location of the recombination zone is a crucial parameter for determining the degree of circular polarization. The result is applied to an organic light-emitting display to improve the luminous efficiency by 60%.
