Reduced graphene oxide (rGO) has recently emerged as a very promising family of exotic carbon material with augmented performance in electronic and optoelectronic devices. Herein, we report an efficient and novel inorganic electroluminescent device geometry, where a new phosphor composite, reduced graphene oxide wrapped ZnS:Cu, Al, acts as an active emitting layer and an exfoliated hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) as a dielectric layer. The roles of rGO in the active layer as a conductive support and local electric field enhancing agent are attributed to its wrinkles being unraveled compared with other carbon exotic nano-forms such as carbon nanotubes, graphite, charcoal and activated carbon, which significantly improves the brightness of the device (similar to 50 cd m (2) for 0.50 wt% rGO/ZnS: Cu, Al at 10 kHz and 110 V with an external quantum efficiency of similar to 6.3% +/- 0.1% and current efficiency of similar to 0.81 +/- 0.09 cd A(-1)). This new and facile strategy to construct the luminescent devices could be a paradigm shift towards cost effective, highly stable in air (for several days) and energy efficient next generation display devices.
