Presentation Summary

  • Quantum dot light emitting diodes (QD-LEDs) are a printable thin film electroluminescent technology that delivers exceptional color and efficiency at low cost of manufacture for display and solid-state lighting applications.
  • In this paper we report our progress on solution-processable QD-LEDs including devices with peak external quantum efficiencies exceeding 5% and peak brightnesses exceeding 40,000 units.
  • These performance benefits make QD-LEDs a compelling full-color display technology and planned future improvements will open up markets in solid-state lighting and advanced photonic devices.
