Abstract

This study investigates the effect of temperature on CdSe/ZnS quantum dots (QDs) in GaN-based light-emitting diodes (LEDs) using the phosphor conversion efficiency (PCE) and LED junction temperature. In our simulation, the blue chip and CdSe/ZnS QDs temperature are similar because of their minimal thickness. Furthermore, to verify the effect of temperature on CdSe/ZnS QDs, we use continuous wave and pulsed current sources to measure the relationship between the temperature and relative PCE. Higher junction temperatures are observed with greater CdSe/ZnS QD volume in LEDs. This is attributed to the thermal conduction and nonradiative energy between CdSe/ZnS QDs and blue chip. Therefore, if thermal management is improved, CdSe/ZnS QDs are expected to be used as color converting material in LEDs.
