The secret of the missing excitons

Feb 26, 2021|

Organic semiconductors as used for OLEDs constantly lose excited electrons by annihilation processes. Now e-conversion scientists could count the chromophoric molecules hosting the electron packets and disclose how they move and extinguish each other.

And the winner is…
