Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

High dielectric constant nanoparticles are an important emerging technology that allow us to significantly improve performance and functionality of future electronic devices as sensors, electro-optical devices, thermistors and multi-layer ceramic capacitors. Additionally, the importance of the technology related with energy efficiency and saving has been emphasized increasingly. For instance, novel dielectric nanocomposites of ferroelectric polymers and surface-functionalized high-K nanoparticles with comparable dielectric permittivities and homogeneous nanoparticle dispersions have been reported the enhancement of energy density for high density electrical energy storage.

In this special issue, we will cover a wide range of this research topic from the various chemical synthesis and manufacturing techniques of high-K nanoparticles to their chemical/physical/optical properties, characterization methods and applications.

Correlation between the Morphology of ZnO Layers and the Electroluminescence of Quantum Dot Light-Emitting Diodes

The present work shows the effect of the ZnO layer morphology on inverted quantum dot light-emitting diodes (QLEDs) using different spin-coating processes. In the inverted structure of ITO/ZnO/QDs/CBP/MoO3/Al, ZnO nanoparticles were used as the electron transport layer. The utilization of a two-step spin-coating process to deposit a ZnO layer on a patterned ITO glass substrate resulted in an increase in the surface roughness of the ZnO layer and a decrease in the luminance of the QLEDs. However, the current efficiency of the device was enhanced by more than two-fold due to the reduced current density. Optimization of the ZnO spin-coating process can efficiently improve the optical and electrical properties of QLEDs. Full article
