Enhancement and tuning of the defect-induced electroluminescence of ZnO mesoporous layers in the visible range

Abstract : We show a way to pattern the visible electroluminescence of solution-processed mesoporous ZnO layers. Our approach consists in locally changing the nanoscale morphology of the coated ZnO layers by patterning the underlying surface with thin metallic patches. Above the metal, the ZnO film is organized in clusters that enhance its defect-induced electroluminescence. The resulting emission occurs over a large continuum of wavelengths in the visible and near-infrared range. This broad emission continuum is filtered by thin film interferences that develop within the device, making it possible to fabricate LEDs with different colours by adjusting the thickness of their transparent electrode. When the metallic patterns used to change the morphology of the ZnO layer reach sub-micron dimensions, additional plasmonic effects arise, providing extra degrees of freedom to tune the colour and polarization of the emitted photons.
