Lead halide perovskite nanocrystals (PeNCs) have attracted extensive attention due to their high photoluminescence quantum yield (PLQY), adjustable bandgap, low cost, and excellent photoelectric properties. In recent years, perovskite based light emitting diodes (LEDs) have developed rapidly and become candidates for low-cost, solution-processing based solid-state lighting.
White light perovskite LEDs are possible to be obtained by stacking different NCs with complementary emissions together in one film. However, the halide ion segregation and exchange lead to severe color instability and complex structure in mixed halide perovskite LED devices. Therefore, new ideas and technologies are required for the development of white light devices.
In a new paper published in Light: Science and Application, a team of scientists, led by Professor Hongwei Song from State Key Laboratory of Integrated Optoelectronics, College of Electronic Science and Engineering, Jilin University, China, and co-workers have developed a promising method to fabricate white perovskite LEDs using lanthanides (Ln3+) ions doped CsPbCl3 PeNCs.
Based on Forster-Dexter theory, the bandgap of perovskite host need to be regulated to match with the energy levels of Ln3+ ions considering the different 4f electronic configurations. And specific defect passivation by introducing stronger binding capping ligands is an important approach to improve the performance of PeNC film. Afterwards, the perovskite LEDs based on the Ln3+ ions doped PeNCs experiencing band engineering and defect passivation were fabricated, in which the EL of Ce3+, Er3+, Sm3+, Eu3+ ions are successfully obtained, respectively.
More importantly, the LEDs based 3.5 mol% Eu3+ ions doped PeNCs show the white light emitting, a peak luminance of 1678 cd m-2 and a maximum external quantum efficiency (EQE) of 5.4%, demonstrating excellent performance among existing white PeNCs LEDs from single chip. This work demonstrates the superiority of single-component Ln3+ ions doped perovskite in the realization of highly efficient and stable white LEDs, providing the optimal scheme for the development of low-cost, simple-structure white perovskite LEDs.

New process boosts efficiency of bifacial CIGS thin film solar cell
Dubendorf, Switzerland (SPX) Dec 18, 2022
The idea is as straightforward as it is simple: If I can collect both direct sunlight as well as its reflection via the rear end of my solar cell, this should increase the yield of energy the cell produces.
Potential applications are, for instance, building-integrated photovoltaics, agrivoltaics – the simultaneous use of areas of land for both photovoltaic power generation and agriculture – and vertically or high-tilt installed solar modules on high-altitude grounds. Enter the bifacial solar cell. … read more
