Emerging Materials and Devices for Efficient Light Generation
The quest for novel electroluminescent and photoluminescent materials along with the design of innovative device architectures are key for efficient light generation. In this Special Topic, we seek to discuss new routes to synthesize and characterize emerging emitters including nanophosphors, nanostructured semiconductors, organic molecules, quantum dots or halide perovskites, in combination with resonant nanophotonic architectures for the development of light-emitting devices of improved efficiency and with new functionalities. We will cover advances on the understanding of the physical mechanisms behind the simultaneous optimization of charge injection and light extraction for lamps and displays that are not only efficient but also thin, flexible or transparent.
