Current Research Focus


Colloidal Quantum Dot Light-Emitting Diodes (QLED) have attracted considerable interests in recent years because of their advantages of high color saturation, tunable emission color and inherent high stability, which make them promising candidates for next generation displays. We focus on developing efficient and stable QLED devices through designing novel structures, engineering critical interfaces, investigating working mechanisms, and exploring novel fabrication processes.


Topics under investigation include:

²  Device Structures. Novel device structures such as microcavity, top-emitting, tandem, inverted, transparent, flexible, white-emission, light-coupling and etc.

²  Device Physics. Including carrier injection and transport, charge balance, exciton dynamic, degradation mechanisms, interfacial physics and etc.

²  Fabrication Processes. Low-cost fabrication techniques including all-solution processing, ink-jet printing, transferring, laminating and etc.
