Abstract

Highly bright CuInS2 quantum dots (QDs), whose emission is easily tuned in orange and greenish-yellow colors through manipulating the ZnS shelling procedure, are integrated with polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) to obtain a free-standing composite plate of QD-polymer. The composite plate embedded with orange or greenish-yellow QDs is combined in a remote type with a blue light-emitting diode (LED). No color rendering index (CRI) value results when orange QDs are applied, whereas use of greenish-yellow QDs leads to a limited CRI of 72. A higher-color rendering QD-LED is demonstrated through a spectral extension by devising a unique bilayer-structured QD plate, where two types of QD are separately incorporated into each PMMA matrix, with a buffer layer of polymer blend inserted between them. The bilayered QD plate LED exhibits an improved CRI of 81, a high luminous efficacy of 71.2lm/W at an input current of 20 mA, and exceptional high-stability luminescent characteristics against the variation of applied current.
