Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) based on colloidal inorganic semiconductor nanocrystals (QDs) represent a completely new technology platform for the development of flat-panel displays and flat-panel lighting systems. Their major advantages are the easy tuning of the saturated color emission across the visible-NIR range and the high chemical and optical stability of the nanocrystal composites. These characteristics open the way to a new class of hybrid devices in which the low cost, flexible technology of organic LEDs is combined with the long operating lifetime of inorganic semiconductor devices.

Abstract

Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) based on colloidal inorganic semiconductor nanocrystals (QDs) represent a completely new technology platform for the development of flat-panel displays and flat-panel lighting systems. Their major advantages are the easy tuning of the saturated color emission across the visible-NIR range and the high chemical and optical stability of the nanocrystal composites. These characteristics open the way to a new class of hybrid devices in which the low cost, flexible technology of organic LEDs is combined with the long operating lifetime of inorganic semiconductor devices. However, so far, few studies have been reported on white-LEDs based on QDs. This review shows recent developments in the general method for the fabrication of stable white-LEDs comprising QDs with a potentially long lifetime.
