Researchers develop bright, efficient and stable perovskite light-emitting diodes

Researchers from Korea's PEROLED, Seoul National University and Korea Basic Science Institute (KBSI), along with scientists from the UK's University of Cambridge, have reported an ultra-bright, efficient and stable perovskite LED made of core/shell perovskite nanocrystals with a size of approximately 10 nm, obtained using a simple in situ reaction of benzylphosphonic acid (BPA) additive with three-dimensional (3D) polycrystalline perovskite films, without separate synthesis processes.

During the reaction, large 3D crystals are split into nanocrystals and the BPA surrounds the nanocrystals, achieving strong carrier confinement. The BPA shell passivates the undercoordinated lead atoms by forming covalent bonds, and thereby greatly reduces the trap density while maintaining good charge-transport properties for the 3D perovskites.

Researchers develop high-resolution perovskite nanocrystal patterning technique for displays

Researchers from the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) have teamed up with researchers from Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST) to develop a patterning technique for the production of perovskite nanocrystal displays which are ultra-thin and high-resolution. The production involves a very simple stamp-like printing process that will facilitate the commercialization of the new technique.

Researchers utilize nano-optical designs for high-efficiency perovskite–silicon tandem solar cells

Researchers from Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and Potsdam University have reported perovskite–silicon tandem solar cells with periodic nanotextures that offer various advantages without compromising the material quality of solution-processed perovskite layers. Textured tandem devices have been presented before, aiming at improved optical performance, but optimizing film growth on surface-textured wafers has thus far remained challenging.

The research team showed a reduction in reflection losses in comparison to planar tandems, with the new devices being less sensitive to deviations from optimum layer thicknesses. The nanotextures also enabled a greatly increased fabrication yield from 50% to 95%. Moreover, the open-circuit voltage was improved by 15 mV due to the enhanced optoelectronic properties of the perovskite top cell. The optically advanced rear reflector with a dielectric buffer layer resulted in reduced parasitic absorption at near-infrared wavelengths. As a result, the team achieved a certified power conversion efficiency of 29.80%.

Researchers develop strategy for perovskite-based blue LEDs

A Florida State University research team, led by FSU Professor of Chemistry Biwu Ma, has developed a simple and effective approach to create an efficient and stable blue light from metal halide perovskites.

Scientists have already created highly efficient and stable perovskite-based LEDs for green and red light, but an efficient and stable blue light has been difficult to achieve. Blue light requires a lot of power, and the blue color purity often decreases over time. An efficient and stable blue light is crucial for creating white light.

Researchers successfully tackle the stability issue of perovskite LEDs

Perovskite LEDs can be produced quite easily and at low cost. They show great promise as they are lightweight and can offer flexibility compared to OLEDs, with color purity and tunability similar to LEDs based on III-V semiconductors. However, the poor device stability of perovskite LEDs will have to be overcome before commercial applications can emerge. Typical lifespans of perovskite LEDs are on the order of 10 to 100 hours. In contrast, the minimum lifetime required for an OLED display is 10,000 hours. It is currently challenging to reach this threshold, as halide perovskite semiconductors can be intrinsically unstable due to the ionic nature of their crystal structures—the ions can move around when voltages are applied to the LEDs, leading to material degradation.

In their recent work, a research group led by Prof. Di Dawei and Prof. Zhao Baodan at the College of Optical Science and Engineering of Zhejiang University discovered that by using a dipolar molecular stabilizer, it is possible to make efficient and stable perovskite LEDs with ultralong lifetimes, satisfying the demands of commercial applications. The research was carried out in collaboration with the research groups of Prof. Li Cheng at Xiamen University, Prof. Hong Zijian at Zhejiang University, and Prof. Li Weiwei at NUAA and formerly at Cambridge University.

Researchers develop novel method to fabricate perovskite-based light-emitting diodes using quantum confinement

Researchers from The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Heilongjiang University, City University of Hong Kong and Sun Yat-sen University have developed a novel technique to fabricate perovskite-based light-emitting diodes using quantum confinement.

According to theory, by adjusting the compositions of the halide being used, i.e., iodine, bromine, and chlorine, the color of the emission may be fine-tuned. Nevertheless, color instability caused by migration of ions and separation in blended halides impedes the future development of perovskite-based LEDs, particularly blue perovskite-based LEDs, which require significantly higher voltages for proper operation. A potential strategy for achieving color controllability in perovskite-based LEDs is to use perovskite-based nanostructures which utilize quantum confinement.

Researchers demonstrate large-area sky-blue perovskite LEDs

A research group, led by Prof. XIAO Zhengguo from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, has developed large-area and efficient sky-blue perovskite light-emitting diodes (PeLEDs) by blade-coating supersaturated perovskite solution.

Researchers Fabricate Large-area Sky-blue PeLEDs image

Metal halide PeLEDs can achieve high luminance at low voltage due to their high electrical conductivity, making them ideal for the next generation of energy-saving lighting. Blue/sky-blue PeLEDs are essential for white lighting, but the EQE of blue light is relatively low since the crystallization process of such perovskite films is difficult to control, which results in poor film quality.
