Researchers achieve breakthrough with blue LEDs based on perovskite quantum dots

Research using the Canadian Light Source (CLS) at the University of Saskatchewan could help bring perovskite QDs display technology closer to commercilization.

Quantum dots are nanocrystals that glow, a property that scientists have been working with to develop next-generation LEDs. When a quantum dot glows, it creates very pure light in a precise wavelength of red, blue or green. Conventional LEDs, found in TV screens today, produce white light that is filtered to achieve desired colors, a process that leads to less bright and muddier colors.

New structure allows metal halide perovskites to emit blue light

Florida State University (FSU) researchers have discovered a novel structure for metal halide perovskite materials that shows potential for more efficient technologies.

Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry Biwu Ma and his team's new study explains how they created a hollow nanostructure for metal halide perovskites that would allow the material to emit a highly efficient blue light.

CSoT demonstrates a 6.6" 384x300 OLED display that uses perovskite quantum dots for color conversion

China-based display maker China Star (CSoT, a subsidiary of TCL) demonstrated a 6.6-inch 384x300 OLED display that uses perovskite quantum dots as a color conversion film.

CSoT is using blue OLED emitter materials, and a perovskite layer to up-convert the color to green (this is a monochrome prototype - evidently a very early prototype). CSoT brands its perovskite-OLEDs as PE-OLED and we believe this is the first time a perovskite-enhanced display has been publicly demonstrated.
