2) For the second research objective, firstly, we propose to increase electron mobility by incorporating semi-conductive materials, possessing higher electron mobility and lower-lying conduction band (CB) than CQD, into CQD film; secondly, we propose to enlarge the depletion region width by incorporating ferroelectric (FE) material between active layer and anode as interfacial layer.
These results clearly show that the "deeper" one goes into the depletion region, the worse (i.
Assuming that this deviation was due to the presence of charged deep-level recombination centers in the depletion region and of opposite polarity from the regular space charge, a value for deep-level states were calculated as 1.
