ABSTRACT

We report a multilayer solution-processed blue light-emitting diode based on colloidal core/shell CdS/ZnS nanocrystal quantum dots (QDs). At a low-operating voltage of 5.5 V, the device emits spectrally pure blue radiation at 460 nm with a narrow full-width-at-half-maximum bandwidth of 20 nm and high brightness up to 1600 cd/m2. Broad-band, long-wavelength emission from the polymer components and deep traps in the QDs are minimized to less than 5% of the total emission.
