ABSTRACT
The article looks into the impact of the improved performance of light emitting diodes (LEDs) based on multilayers of quantum dots (QDs). It focuses on high-quality multicolor QD-LEDs of researchers from China and the U.S. reflecting the role of detailed nanoengineering of available materials in enhancing device performance to enable flat-panel displays. The authors stress the value of understanding electroluminescence toward the enhancement of device optimization in QD-LEDs.
