Researchers use a micro-LED covered with perovskite QDs to achieve high-speed visible light communication

Researchers from Fudan University in China have developed a high-bandwidth white-light based system made from a blue gallium nitride (GaN) micro-LED with yellow-emitting perovskite quantum dots. This system could open the door to high-speed real-time visible light communication (VLC).

The researchers used a 80 x 80 um blue-emitting micro-LED that has a modulation bandwidth of about 160 MHz and a peak emission wavelength of ~445 nm. The white-light system (following the perovskite QD conversion) achieves 85 Mhz - which means a maximum data rate of 300 Mbps.
