Record External Quantum Efficiency Achieved in Light-Emitting Diodes of Solution-Synthesized Quantum Wells

“Professor Demir’s research team demonstrate record-high external quantum efficiency of 19.2% achieved in light-emitting diodes of colloidal quantum wells enabled by hot-injection shell growth”. Colloidal quantum wells (CQWs) have recently emerged as a new family of semiconductor nanocrystals with distinctive structural and electronic properties originating from their atomically flat structure. Thanks to the tight quantum [...]
