Abstract

original image

Glowing white: Bulk hybrid semiconductor materials built from periodic nanostructured 2D layers of ZnS emit bright white light. Their emission intensity, quantum efficiency, and color quality can be systematically tuned by varying the composition of both the inorganic and organic components. The materials show great promise as a new type of single-phase white-light-emitting phosphors.
