Spectroscopic Study of FTO/CdSe (MPA)/ZnO Artificial Atoms Emitting White Color


  • Department of Physics, Aleppo University, Syrian Arab Republic


Objective: To design Light Emitting Diode (LED) based on artificial atoms using spin coating method and to study its optical spectroscopy to determine emission wavelength and emitted color of this LED.

Methods: By using UV-spectrometer, absorption spectra were measured. Photo luminescence spectra were carried out using spectrophotometer (Hitachi-FL250) at room temperature. To determine electronic transition responsible of PL peaks, we analyzed PL spectra using Gaussian profile broading line method using Mathcad program.

Finding: The range of absorption wavelength was found (350-550 nm). PL spectra contain four peaks (350-400-500-550 nm) that mean this LED emits white color depending on theory of maxing color. Intensity of blue and yellow peak colors was higher than red and green peak colors. Gaussian analysis reveals that all theoretical electronic transitions and this structure of quantum confinement semiconductor emit white color. By varying the thickness of layers, the order of wavelengths can be changed to emit a single color of visible spectrum. This project can reduce energy consumption in the world by the produce of LED based on Quantum dots.

Improvement: We can enhance performance of this LED by adding active layer of artificial atoms that emit green and red color to make intensity of white color.
