Continuous White Luminescence of ZnS:Pb2+ and Core/Shell ZnS:Pb2+/ZnS Nanocrystals
Abstract:High-quality water-soluble ZnS:Pb2+ nanocrystals were synthesized via a simple chemical co-depositing method. The as-synthesized ZnS:Pb2+ nanocrystals show high monodispersity and crystallinity with a narrow size distribution (3.2±0.4 nm). ZnS:Pb2+/ZnS core/shell structures were also obtained by coating a ZnS shell displaying significantly enhanced photoluminescence (PL) intensity and photostability. For the ZnS:Pb2+/ZnS samples the position of emission spectrum shows a red-shift of approximately 10 nm, which produces a fairly pure white emission with Commission Internationale de l'Eclairage (CIE) coordinates of (0.31, 0.33). These phenomena are explained by a model of multiple Pb2+ luminescent centers.
