Photoluminescent Materials and Electroluminescent Devices

Nicola Armaroli, Henk J. Bolink (Eds.) - Springer, 2017

This book encompasses the discussion of the most established luminescent materials, such as organic polymers, transition metal complexes (iridium, copper, platinum, gold) and inorganic phosphors, with special emphasis on their use in emitting devices. Also contributions primarily focusing on electroluminescent devices - organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) and light-emitting electrochemical cells (LECs) - and fundamental photophysical phenomena of technological interest - photochemical upconversion and thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) - are discussed. Finally, luminescent perovskites and near-infrared emitters are illustrated as examples of materials with still limited or no technological applications, but with wide potential for development.
