Indium phosphide (InP) quantum dots (QDs) have shown great potential to replace the widely applied toxic cadmium-containing and lead perovskite QDs due to their similar emission wavelength range and emission peak width but without intrinsic toxicity. Recently, electrically driven red and green InP-based quantum-dot light-emitting diodes (QLEDs) have achieved great progress in external quantum efficiency (EQE), reaching up to 12.2% and 6.3%, respectively. Despite the relatively poor device performance comparing with cadmium selenide (CdSe)-and perovskite-based QLEDs, these encouraging facts with unique environmental friendliness and solution-processability foreshadow the enormous potential of InP-based QLEDs for energy-efficient, high-color-quality thin-film display and solid-state lighting applications. In this article, recent advances in the research of the InP-based QLEDs have been discussed, with the main focus on device structure selection and interface research, as well as our outlook for on-going strategies of high-efficiency InP-based QLEDs.
