Abstract

We have demonstrated a new emerging rare-earth free highly-efficient two dimensional (2D) boron carbon oxynitride (BCNO) yellow emitting nanophosphor with high quantum efficiency for white light emitting diode (WLED) devices. This BCNO nanophosphor exhibits 2D layered structures analogous to hexagonal BN phase. Further, the EELS and XPS results confirm the nanophosphor consisted of B, C, N and O elements. The BCNO nanophosphor shows a broad highly intense yellow emission band centered at 580 nm corresponding to 470 nm excitation wavelength with a quantum efficiency approaching 89%. This novel nanophosphor with strong emission has subsequently been integrated to chip on board (CoB) based blue LEDs in order to fabricate WLEDs devices with a color rendering index of 92. Low color temperature (4899) and better CIE color coordinates (x = 0.3496, y = 0.3679) of a fabricated WLEDs device supports a 2D BCNO nanophosphor that could be an exceptional choice for CoB based WLEDs. Hence, our method provides a facile synthesis of rare-earth free 2D lightweight BCNO nanophosphor and its integration with CoB based blue LEDs for next generation advanced solid state white light applications.
