Hybrid passivated colloidal quantum dot solids.
The density of midgap trap states in CQD solids is quantified and shown to be limited by electron-hole recombination due to these states, and a robust hybrid passivation scheme is developed that can passivate trap sites that are inaccessible to much larger organic ligands.
Ultrasensitive solution-cast quantum dot photodetectors
The tailored selection of absorption onset energy through the quantum size effect, combined with deliberate engineering of the sequence of nanoparticle fusing and surface trap functionalization, underlie the superior performance achieved in this readily fabricated family of devices.
Colloidal-quantum-dot photovoltaics using atomic-ligand passivation.
An atomic ligand strategy is established that makes use of monovalent halide anions to enhance electronic transport and successfully passivate surface defects in PbS CQD films that shows up to 6% solar AM1.5G power-conversion efficiency.
Depleted-heterojunction colloidal quantum dot solar cells.
Colloidal quantum dot (CQD) photovoltaics combine low-cost solution processability with quantum size-effect tunability to match absorption with the solar spectrum. Rapid recent advances in CQD
Low trap-state density and long carrier diffusion in organolead trihalide perovskite single crystals
An antisolvent vapor-assisted crystallization approach is reported that enables us to create sizable crack-free MAPbX3 single crystals with volumes exceeding 100 cubic millimeters, which enabled a detailed characterization of their optical and charge transport characteristics.
Lighting the local area: optical code-division multiple access and quality of service provisioning
Optical CDMA is shown to be competitive with other networking technologies such as WDMA and TDMA, but has the benefit of more flexibility, simpler protocols, and no need for centralized network control.
Perovskite energy funnels for efficient light-emitting diodes.
A perovskite mixed material comprising a series of differently quantum-size-tuned grains that funnels photoexcitations to the lowest-bandgap light-emitter in the mixture functions as charge carrier concentrators, ensuring that radiative recombination successfully outcompetes trapping and hence non-radiatives recombination.
Efficient and stable solution-processed planar perovskite solar cells via contact passivation
A contact-passivation strategy using chlorine-capped TiO2 colloidal nanocrystal film that mitigates interfacial recombination and improves interface binding in low-temperature planar solar cells is reported.
Solution-processed PbS quantum dot infrared photodetectors and photovoltaics
Sittingizing conjugated polymers with infrared-active nanocrystal quantum dots provides a spectrally tunable means of accessing the infrared while maintaining the advantageous properties of polymers, and makes use of the wavelength tunability afforded by the nanocrystals to show photocurrent spectra tailored to three different regions of the infrared spectrum.
Enhanced mobility-lifetime products in PbS colloidal quantum dot photovoltaics.
Electrical and optical measurements reveal a more than 7-fold enhancement of the mobility-lifetime product of PbS CQD films treated with 3-mercaptopropionic acid (MPA) in comparison to traditional organic passivation strategies that have been examined in the literature.
