Abstract

We report on the integration of monodisperse semiconductor nanocrystal (NC) color converters onto gallium nitride ultraviolet micropixelated light-emitting diodes ('micro-LEDs'). Integration is achieved in a 'self-aligned' process by forming a nanocomposite of the respective NCs in a photocurable epoxy polymer. Blue, green, yellow and red NC/epoxy blend microstructures have been successfully integrated onto micro-pixelated LEDs by this technique and utilised for color conversion, resulting in a five color emission single chip. Optical output power density of up to about 166mW/cm2 is measured; spectral emission at 609nm gives an estimated optical-to-optical conversion as high as 18.2% at 30mA driving current.
