Abstract:

This Review article summarizes the key advantages of using quantum dots (QDs) as luminophores in light-emitting devices (LEDs) and outlines the
operating mechanisms of four types of QD-LED. The key scientific and
technological challenges facing QD-LED commercialization are identified,
together with on-going strategies to overcome these challenges.
