The study of perovskite materials for clean energy harvesting and light emission is an emergent and highly promising field that has realized groundbreaking progress in efficiency over the past several years. For energy-efficient displays, cesium-based perovskite quantum dots are a well-suited and desirable material due to their high photoluminescence quantum yield, color tunability, and facile solution processibility. I plan to develop a direct photolithography process to pattern and create a balanced, full-color, and ultra-bright micro-LED display. Incorporation of polymer ligands will address stability and enable direct patterning of the perovskite active layer, thus greatly simplifying the micro-LED fabrication process and increasing production throughput. This project will help advance research in novel display technology for stable, high-resolution, reduced power-consumption and hence energy-efficient operation suitable for integration with commercial fabrication techniques.
