The paper presents some results of study based on applications of ZnS core shell quantum dots (QDs) doped with Cu. Keeping the luminous properties in focus we synthesized the core shell QDs by chemical precipitation route, resulting in formation of core@shell QDs with ZnS core doped with copper and ZnS shell on it, i.e. [ZnS:Cu@ZnS]. We focus the application of these particles in field of OLED's (AMOLED) to address the performance deficiencies like varying brightness of the different wavelength emitting LEDs, called Green Window problem. Efforts have been done to address the problems by synthesizing highly luminescent green emitting copper doped ZnS, core@shell QDs. Further a monolayer of core shell quantum dots was deposited on ITO by spin coating for analyzing the photometric properties of the QDs.
