Colloidal CdSe quantum dot (QD) phosphors have attracted considerable attention as green and red phosphors for blue backlight downconversion in next-generation liquid-crystal displays because of their excellent emission features including tunable emission wavelength and narrow emission bands. Alternatives to CdSe, which do not contain toxic cadmium, are strongly desired to ensure safety and reduce the environmental load of consumer products. Herein, we synthesized colloidal Zn(Te,Se)/ZnS core/shell QDs and demonstrated narrow-band green photoluminescence (PL) emission. A full width at half-maximum of 30 nm was achieved for PL emission at 535 nm from Zn(Te0.77Se0.23)/ZnS core/shell QDs with a core QD diameter of 4.3 nm. This emission characteristic was as good as that of CdSe QDs.
