• 83. An Ambipolar BODIPY Derivative for a White Exciplex OLED and Cholesteric Liquid Crystal Laser toward Multifunctional Devices

    A new interface engineering method is demonstrated for the preparation of an efficient white organic light-emitting diode (WOLED) by embedding an ultrathin layer of the novel ambipolar red emissive compound 4,4-difluoro-2,6-di(4-hexylthiopen-2-yl)-1,3,5,7,8-pentamethyl-4-bora-3a,4a-diaza-s-indacene (bThBODIPY) in the exciplex formation region. The compound shows a hole and electron mobility of 3.3 × 10–4 and 2 × 10–4 cm2 V–1 s–1, respectively, at electric […]

  • 79. Elucidation of the bonding of a near infrared dye to hollow gold nanospheres – a chalcogen tripod.

    Infrared surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) is an attractive technique for the in situdetection of nanoprobes in biological samples due to the greater depth of penetration and reduced interference compared to SERS in the visible region. A key challenge is to understand the surface layer formed in suspension when a specific label is added to the […]

  • 77. A single emitting layer white OLED based on exciplex interface emission

    A new triaryl molecule based on a benzene–benzothiadiazole–benzene core has been applied in a WOLED device. This very simple molecule emits from a combination of emissive states (exciton/electromer/exciplex/electroplex) to give white light with CIE coordinates of (0.38, 0.45) and a colour temperature of 4500 K.
