White light emission was obtained from a light-emitting diode prepared from polymer/quantum dot nanocomposites consisting of poly(9,9′- dihexylfluorene-2,7-divinylene-m-phenylenevinylene-stat-p-phenylenevinylene) (PDHFPPV) and two kinds of CdSe nanoparticles with different particle size. Blue emission from the polymer, green emission from the ∼3 nm CdSe and red emission from the ∼7 nm CdSe, which is triggered by partial excitation energy transfer from the polymer, jointly contribute to white emission of the organic-inorganic hybrid device. Also, the blue-emitting matrix polymer makes the device preparation process simpler due to its high processability. By controlling the blend ratio, we could obtain a pure white colour from the hybrid device.
