SPIE Photonics Europe 2018: Join us at a new Conference EPE117

At the upcoming SPIE Photonics Europe 2018 (April 22-26, 2018) in Strasbourg, France, my colleague Koen Vandewal and I organize a new Conference called Organic Electronics and Photonics: Fundamentals and Devices (EPE117). The Call for Papers reads:

Organic materials are interesting for a myriad of photonic and optoelectronic applications due to their tunability of key electronic and optical properties, their versatility of processing, the softness of the solid films formed, and their potential to allow for non-toxic materials. Currently monochrome organic light-emitting diodes are a commercial product used in displays, while organic photovoltaics and sensors for low cost, bio, artificial skin, or wearable applications have seen rapid development in de latest years. On the basis of this very versatile material platform, it is expected that many more, innovative application concepts will be discovered and developed.

Hereby does fundamental research on organic electronics and photonics form the backbone for the discovery of new applications, especially, when materials’ properties are evaluated free of pre-determined applications. Moreover, basic experimental and theoretical research on charge, energy and spin transfer processes, organic-organic interfaces and their electronic structure, will provide structure-property relations and progress existing applications.

The focus of this conference will be on the following topics:

  • optoelectronic organic devices including light-emitting diodes, solar cells, photodetectors, sensors, transistors and switches
  • organic optical systems: waveguides, energy converters, cavities, light directors
  • organic bioelectronics with focus on optics
  • basic research in organic electronics and photonics: spectroscopy, charge generation, transport and recombination, spin,
  • charge and electron transfer interfaces, theoretical calculations and modelling, structure-property relations.

The deadline for abstract submission is October 23, 2017, so a couple of weeks to go.

We encourage you all to submit an abstract and join us for an exciting and inspiring week of fruitful scientific exchange.

International TADF Symposium in Frankfurt is upcoming

On Thursday, September 7, 2017, the International TADF Symposium (organized by cynora GmbH) will take place in Frankfurt. It will be a packed one-day event with a tight focus on OLEDs based on thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF). The event will bring together leading industry and academia to share new results and discuss upcoming developments. You can find all the details about speakers and program on the events webpage. It is definitely a very good opportunity to get in touch with the people working on this exciting material development.

New paper: Interplay of Fluorescence and Phosphorescence in Organic Biluminescent Emitters

In our recent publication entitled ‘Interplay of Fluorescence and Phosphorescence in Organic Biluminescent Emitters‘ published in the Journal of Physical Chemistry C, we discuss how the population of triplet excitons in emitters which sport efficient phosphorescence at room temperature influence the overall luminescence properties. An important emphasis here is on the exciton dynamics of the fast fluorescence (nanoseconds) and the slow phosphorescence (milliseconds), which span over six orders of magnitude in excited state lifetimes, depending on the respective sample composition. All of these results are obtained at room temperature.

We acknowledge the funding from the German excellence cluster cfaed (TU Dresden) and from European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement no. 679213).

TADF paper featured in Advanced Science News

Our recent paper together with our colleagues at the Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden (IPF), is featured in Advanced Science News. This work discusses a novel way to achieve thermally activated delayed fluorescence in polymers through an extension of the HOMO conjugation, which ultimately leads to a smaller splitting between singlet and triplet excited charge transfer states. The paper can be found here: Conjugation-Induced Thermally Activated Delayed Fluorescence (TADF): From Conventional Non-TADF Units to TADF-Active Polymers.
