Energy Transfer in Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED): The secret of the missing excitons

Mar 01, 2021

Organic semiconductors such as those in OLEDs would be more efficient if parts of the energy did not disappear secretly into the material. A team from the e-conversion cluster has successfully followed the trail – equipped with an elegant method that counts the excited electrons and discloses how they vanish.

The toolbox always at hand: Self-regeneration and self-healing of DNA-based molecular structures

Jan 21, 2021

How do you repair the world's smallest machines? The best way is to let them do it on their own. Many nano-machines are made of artificial DNA building blocks, and a group from the e-conversion cluster has now shown that this material can replace its own defective parts by itself.
