Abstract:

Core–shell PbS–CdS quantum dots enhance the peak external quantum efficiency of shortwave-infrared light-emitting devices by up to
50–100-fold (compared with core-only PbS devices). This is more than
double the efficiency of previous quantum-dot light-emitting devices
operating at wavelengths beyond 1 μm, and results from the passivation of
the PbS cores by the CdS shells against in situ photoluminescence
quenching.
