Three-dimensional perovskites have proved themselves remarkably successful materials for LED devices and solar panels in the past decade. One key issue with these materials, however, is their stability, with device performance decreasing quicker than […]

In Singapore, authorities are looking at the feasibility of digging deeper underground to create new space for infrastructure, storage, […]

Kobe University’s Associate Professor Tachikawa Takashi and Dr. Karimata Izuru have succeeded in completely substituting the halide ions of perovskite nanocrystals (see #1 below) while maintaining their morphology and light-emitting efficiency. Hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites (see #2 below) have received much attention as potential next generation solar cells and as materials for light-emitting devices. By using […]

Physicists in China, led by Yadong Wang at Hebei North University, found that higher-than-expected efficiency can be reached through interactions between triplet excitons, and impurities embedded in the LED polymer. Molecular dynamics simulations have shown that the mysteriously high efficiency of polymer LEDs arises from interactions between triplet excitons in their polymer chains, and unpaired […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has a new design for light-emitting diodes that achieves a dramatic increase in brightness as well as the ability to create laser light. These characteristics could make it valuable in a range of applications. The device shows an increase in brightness of 100 to 1,000 times […]
