Nonradiative energy transfer in assembly of nanostructures
(Springer Verlag, 2017)
This chapter is reprinted (adapted) with permission from Ref. . Copyright 2014 American Chemical Society. Here, we present the theoretical framework of generalized Förster-type nonradiative energy transfer (FRET) between ...
Exciton dynamics of colloidal semiconductor quantum well stacks
(Springer Netherlands, 2018)
Colloidal semiconductor nanoplatelets (NPLs) have recently emerged as a new class of colloidal nanocrystals. NPLs are quasi two-dimensional nanocrystals having atomically flat surfaces and have unique properties such as ...
Emerging fields of colloidal nanophotonics for quality lighting to versatile lasing
(Springer Verlag, 2018)
Solution-processed semiconductor nanocrystals have attracted increasingly greater interest in optoelectronics including color conversion and enrichment in quality lighting and display backlighting. Optical properties of ...
Common white light sources
In this Chapter we describe the features of common light sources. We first present the spectral features of the sun and discuss its colorimetric properties. Next, we summarize the properties of traditional light sources ...
Colorimetry for LED lighting
In this Chapter, we explain the basics of colorimetry and introduce the colorimetric tools useful for designing light sources.
How to design quality light sources with discrete color components
White light sources using discrete emitters require careful design and optimization. The first step of the design should be determining the intended use of the light source so that application specific requirements can be ...
Metrics for light source design
In this part of this brief, we summarize the metrics that need to be considered for designing light sources. We start with metrics on the shade of color and then continue with color rendering and photometry.
Light stimulus and human eye
In this Chapter, we summarize the structure of the human eye and introduce the sensitivity functions of various photoreceptors and present the visual regimes and corresponding eye sensitivity functions.
In this final Chapter, we present a future perspective for the light source design. We discuss the existing problems and briefly introduce new material systems and device architectures that can overcome the current issues.
Biomedical and biochemical tools of förster resonance energy transfer enabled by colloidal quantum dot nanocrystals for life sciences
(Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2013)
Semiconductor quantum nanocrystals (NCs) provide the ability to control and fine-tune peak emission wavelength using the size effect, with a broad optical absorption band (excitation window) increasing toward UV wavelength ...
