AbstractWhite light based on blue laser - YAG: Ce phosphor has the advantage of implementing solid-state lighting and optical wireless communications combined-functionalities in a single lamp. However, the blue light was found to disrupt melatonin production, and therefore the human circadian rhythm in general; while the yellow phosphor is susceptible to degradation by laser irradiation and also lack tunability in color rendering index (CRI). In this investigation, by using a violet laser, which has 50% less impact on circadian response, as compared to blue light, and an InGaN-quantum-disks nanowires-based light-emitting diode (NWs-LED), we address both issues simultaneously. The white light is therefore generated using violet-green-red lasers, in conjunction with a yellow NWs-LED realized using molecular beam epitaxy technique, on titanium-coated silicon substrates. Unlike the conventional quantum-well-based LED, the NWs-LED showed efficiency-droop free behavior up to 9.8 A/cm with peak output power of 400 μW. A low turn-on voltage of ∼2.1 V was attributed to the formation of conducting titanium nitride layer at NWs nucleation site and improved fabrication process in the presence of relatively uniform height distribution. The 3D quantum confinement and the reduced band bending improve carriers-wavefunctions overlap, resulting in an IQE of ∼39 %. By changing the relative intensities of the individual color components, CRI of >85 was achieved with tunable correlated color temperature (CCT), thus covering the desired room lighting conditions. Our architecture provides important considerations in designing smart solid-state lighting while addressing the harmful effect of blue light.

Spectrally Selective Smart Window with High Near-Infrared Light Shielding and Controllable Visible Light TransmittanceWu, Mengchun; Shi, Yusuf; Li, Renyuan; Wang, Peng (ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, American Chemical Society (ACS), 2018-10-26) [Article]Smart windows with high near-infrared (NIR) light shielding and controllable visible light transmittance are highly sought after for cooling energy saving in buildings. Herein we present a rationally designed spectrally selective smart window which is capable of shielding 96.2% of the NIR irradiation from 800 nm to 2500 nm and at the same time permitting acceptable visible light (78.2% before and 45.3% after its optical switching) for indoor daylighting. The smart window synergistically integrates the highly selective and effective NIR absorption based photothermal conversion of cesium tungsten bronze (CsxWO3) with the transparent thermo-responsive poly(N-isopropyl acrylamide) microgel-polyacrylamide (PAM-PNIPAM) hydrogel. The optical switching of the smart window is a direct result of the phase transition of PAM-PNIPAM hydrogel which in turn is induced by the photothermal effect of CsxWO3 under sunlight irradiation. The smart window exhibits fast optical switching, shows a long-term operational stability, and can be made highly flexible. Under the experimental conditions in this work, the indoor temperature with the smart window is ~21 °C lower than that with regular single-layered glass window under one sun irradiation. The smart window design in this work is meaningful for further development of effective smart windows for energy saving in the build environment.
Efficient metal halide perovskite light-emitting diodes with significantly improved light extraction on nanophotonic substratesZhang, Qianpeng; Tavakoli, Mohammad Mahdi; Gu, Leilei; Zhang, Daquan; Tang, Lei; Gao, Yuan; Guo, Ji; Lin, Yuanjing; Leung, Siu; Poddar, Swapnadeep; Fu, Yu; Fan, Zhiyong (Nature Communications, Springer Nature, 2019-02-13) [Article]Metal halide perovskite has emerged as a promising material for light-emitting diodes. In the past, the performance of devices has been improved mainly by optimizing the active and charge injection layers. However, the large refractive index difference among different materials limits the overall light extraction. Herein, we fabricate efficient methylammonium lead bromide light-emitting diodes on nanophotonic substrates with an optimal device external quantum efficiency of 17.5% which is around twice of the record for the planar device based on this material system. Furthermore, optical modelling shows that a high light extraction efficiency of 73.6% can be achieved as a result of a two-step light extraction process involving nanodome light couplers and nanowire optical antennas on the nanophotonic substrate. These results suggest that utilization of nanophotonic structures can be an effective approach to achieve high performance perovskite light-emitting diodes.
High-power blue superluminescent diode for high CRI lighting and high-speed visible light communicationAlatawi, Abdullah; Holguin Lerma, Jorge Alberto; Kang, Chun Hong; Shen, Chao; Subedi, Ram Chandra; Albadri, Abdulrahman M.; Alyamani, Ahmed Y.; Ng, Tien Khee; Ooi, Boon S. (Optics Express, The Optical Society, 2018-09-25) [Article]We demonstrated a high-power (474 mW) blue superluminescent diode (SLD) on c-plane GaN-substrate for speckle-free solid-state lighting (SSL), and high-speed visible light communication (VLC) link. The device, emitting at 442 nm, showed a large spectral bandwidth of 6.5 nm at an optical power of 105 mW. By integrating a YAG-phosphor-plate to the SLD, a CRI of 85.1 and CCT of 3392 K were measured, thus suitable for solid-state lighting. The SLD shows a relatively large 3-dB modulation bandwidth of >400 MHz, while a record high data rate of 1.45 Gigabit-per-second (Gbps) link has been achieved below forward-error correction (FEC) limit under non-return-to-zero on-off keying (NRZ-OOK) modulation scheme. Our results suggest that SLD is a promising alternative for simultaneous speckle-free white lighting and Gbps data communication dual functionalities.
