Abstract

The generation of white light from CdS nanoparticles (NPs) illuminated by UV-LED is presented. The synthesis of CdS nanoparticles from the reaction of CdCl2 and the sulfur dissolved in oleylamine in 1:2 mole ratio was used in the preparation of CdS nanocrystalline. The PMMA film doped with CdS nanoparticles was prepared. The generation of white light was found from illumination of the CdS/polymer composite film by UV-LED of power 5 mW at λ = 385 nm. The white light generation mechanism was explaining depending on mixing colors from the illuminated CdS nanoparticles. The surface levels formed in the CdS optical energy band due to nanostructure was estimated from Poisson equation designed for this state. The chromaticity coordinates of the generated white light was measured by the help of photoluminescence (PL) spectrum and the correlated color temperature was found to be about 4000 K.
