Organic-Inorganic Hetero Junction White Light Emitting Diode: N-type ZnO and P-type conjugated polymer
Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 20 points / 30 hpStudent thesis
The purpose of this thesis work is to design and fabricates organic-inorganic hetero junction White Light Emitting Diode (WLED). In this WLED, inorganic material is n- type ZnO and organic material is p-type conjugated polymer. The first task was to synthesise vertically aligned ZnO nano-rods on glass as well as on plastic substrates using aqueous chemical growth method at a low temperature. The second task was to find out the proper p- type organic material that gives cheap and high efficient WLED operation. The proposed polymer shouldn’t create a high barrier potential across the interface and also it should block electrons entering into the polymer. To optimize the efficiency of WLED; charge injection, charge transport and charge recombination must be considered. The hetero junction organic-inorganic structures have to be engineered very carefully in order to obtain the desired light emission. The layered structure is composed of p-polymer/n-ZnO and the recombination has been desired to occur at the ZnO layer in order to obtain white light emission. Electrical characterization of the devices was carried out to test the rectifying properties of the hetero junction diodes.
