We have synthesized water soluble zinc selenium (ZnSe) nanocrystals by using mercaotoacetic acid (TGA) as the stabilizer. The synthesized ZnSe nanocrystals were co-doped with poly[2-methoxy-5-(2′-ethylhexyloxy-p-phenylenevinylene)] (MEH-PPV) to fabricate an organic/inorganic hybrid multilayer light-emitting device (LED). The structure of the device was indium-tin-oxide (ITO)/poly (ethylene-dioxythiophene):poly(styrenesul-fonate) (PEDOT:PSS)/MEH-PPV:ZnSe/bathocuproine (BCP)/tris-(8-hydroxylquinoline)-aluminum (Alq3)/Al. We demonstrate that the device has a lower driving voltage and increased current densities and power efficiencies owing to the co-doped ZnSe quantum dots. We obtained good efficiency of the devices when the quality ratio of MEH-PPV and ZnSe quantum dots was 1:1.
