A new method for investigating light-emitting property in organic devices is demonstrated. We apply the ambipolar light-emitting transistors (LETs) to directly observe the recombination zone, and find a strong link between the transistor performance and the zone size. This finding unambiguously indicates that the light emission comes from the electric-field-induced p-i-n homojunction in ambipolar LETs.
