Researchers design multifunctional display based on photo-responsive perovskite light-emitting diodes

Researchers at Linköping University, Nanjing University and NanjingTech have developed a multifunctional display that uses photo-responsive metal halide perovskite LEDs as pixels. The perovskite LED display can be simultaneously used as a touch screen, ambient light sensor and image sensor (including for fingerprint drawing) without integrating any additional sensors. The light-to-electricity conversion efficiency of the pixels also allow the display to act as a photovoltaic device that can charge the equipment.

This is a step forward compared to current display screens, which are typically only used for information display, but can have a range of different sensors integrated into them for functions such as touch control, ambient light sensing and fingerprint sensing. According to the team, photo-responsive light-emitting diodes (LEDs), which can display information and respond to light excitation, could be used to develop future ultra-thin and large screen-to-body ratio screens. However, photo-response is difficult to achieve with conventional display technologies.

Researchers develop "all-in-one" organic ligand for emitting perovskite nanocrystals

Perovskite nanocrystals (PNCs) have considerable potential as next-generation display materials thanks to their excellent photoluminescence quantum yield (PLQY), wide color gamut, and narrow emission bandwidth. However, due to their weak stability against solvents, their patterning remains a challenge. In a recent study, researchers at Ajou University, Hanyang University, Sungkyunkwan University, Macquarie University and Kongju National University developed functional organic ligands (AzL1-Th and AzL2-Th) for the fine pixelation of perovskite nanocrystal (PNC) displays. 

Functional ligands containing photocurable azide moieties exhibit good charge transport properties and fast and efficient photocrosslinking performance, while maintaining a high PLQY. The team successfully demonstrated the crosslinked PNC light emitting diodes using AzL1-Th. The results suggest the high potential of photocurable ligands for the micro-patterning of PNC films without film damages.

Researchers develop method for enhancing the performance of blue perovskite LEDs

Researchers at the University of Cambridge, University of Science and Technology of China, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Soochow University, OIST, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Victoria University of Wellington and Kyushu University have demonstrated efficient blue perovskite LEDs based on a mixed two-dimensional–three-dimensional perovskite and a multifunctional ionic additive that enables control over the reduced-dimensional phases, non-radiative recombination channels and spectral stability. 

The team reported a series of devices that emit efficient electroluminescence from mixed bromide/chloride quasi-three-dimensional regions, with external quantum efficiencies of up to 21.4% (at a luminance of 22 cd m–2 and emission peak at 483 nm), 13.2% (at a luminance of 2.0 cd m–2 and emission peak at 474 nm) and 7.3% (at a luminance of 6 cd m–2 and emission peak at 464 nm). The devices showed a nearly 30-fold increase in operational stability compared with control LEDs, with a half-lifetime of 129 min at an initial luminance of 100 cd m–2

Researchers develop new sieving technique for better perovskite LEDs

Researchers at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), University of Nottingham Ningbo China and University of Science and Technology of China have developed a novel solvent sieve method that significantly enhances the performance and operational stability of perovskite light-emitting diodes (PeLEDs).

Perovskites' practical application in PeLEDs has thus been constrained by their low operational stability. The recent research, centered on a comprehensive analysis of perovskite nanostructures, identified the presence of defective low n-phase perovskites as a primary factor undermining device stability. These defective phases, characterized by a minimal number of lead ion layers, arise from rapid and uncontrolled crystallization processes. The simple solvent sieve treatment reported in this study addresses this issue and improves the efficiency and stability potentials of high-brightness perovskite light-emitting diodes for future commercial applications.

Researchers examine the role of chloride on the instability of blue emitting mixed-halide perovskites

Researchers in Sweden and China have studied the reasons behind the short operational lifetime of blue perovskite-based LEDs (PeLEDs). 

While perovskite light-emitting diodes (PeLEDs) have seen unprecedented development in device efficiency over the past decade, they still suffer from poor operational stability. This is especially true for blue PeLEDs, whose operational lifetime remains orders of magnitude behind their green and red counterparts. The scientists in this work have systematically investigated this efficiency-stability discrepancy in a series of green- to blue-emitting PeLEDs based on mixed Br/Cl-perovskites. Typically, mixed chloride/bromide perovskites are employed to produce ideal blue emission. However, the researchers have uncovered a counterintuitive fact: even minute quantities of chloride loading can have a dramatic negative impact on the operational lifetime of these devices.
