Inorganic-organic ZnO Based Heterostructures for Lighting
2009 (English)In: ECS transactionsArticle in journal (Refereed) Published
Here we present results on different organic and inorganic light emitting diodes (LED). The use of n-ZnO nanorods grown on different substrates forms the base of this new technology. p-type semiconducting as well as polymeric based substrates were used. The combination of n-ZnO nanorods and light emitting polymer(s) will lead to a LED with a broad emission spectrum and hence the possibility of producing white LEDs. Different issues regarding this hybrid new technology for lighting are to be discussed. Among them, we will present electrical, optical and electro-optical characteristics of different configurations of this hybrid technology regarding the polymer layer(s) choice. The light quality of the fabricated n-ZnO nanorods/p-type substrates LEDs will be shown and analyzed. Finally a comparison between this hybrid technology and other LEDs based on ZnO nanorods in combination with other inorganic p-type semiconductor is to be discussed.
