Colloidal nanoplatelets, quasi-two-dimensional quantum wells, have recently been introduced as colloidal semiconductor materials with the narrowest known photoluminescence line width (similar to 10 nm). Unfortunately, these materials have not been shown to have continuously tunable emission but rather emit at discrete wavelengths that depend strictly on atomic-layer thickness. Herein, we report a new synthesis approach that overcomes this issue: by alloying CdSe colloidal nanoplatelets with CdS, we finely tune the emission spectrum while still leveraging atomic-scale thickness control. We proceed to demonstrate light-emitting diodes with sub-bandgap turn-on voltages (2.1 V for a device emitting at 2.4 eV) and the narrowest electroluminescence spectrum (FWHM similar to 12.5 nm) reported for colloidal semiconductor LEDs.
