Project title: Luminescent materials for optoelectronic devices

We are developing materials for more efficient light-emitting devices that may have applications in the next generation of optoelectronic devices, such as flat-screen displays. In order to realise this new technology, new Alternating Current Electroluminescent (ACEL) materials are required. The preparation and characterisation of these materials, in addition to probing their suitability for inclusion into devices, will be central to the project. This project is co-funded by Luxtec Ltd.
