A research group in Japan has found that perovskite can be used in the development of thick organic light-emitting diodes that function on par with their OLED-only counterparts.
Each year, Asian Scientist Magazine highlights 100 outstanding thinkers and innovators from Asia who are pushing the envelope with their research.
Professor Chihaya Adachi was conferred the award for his research on high-performance organic light-emitting transistors and laser diodes.
In an illuminating study, scientists in Japan have developed organic materials that retain their glow over extended periods of time.
These scientists were recently recognized for their research at the Japan Research Front Awards 2016.
By adding layers of a lithium-containing molecule to a thermally-activated delayed fluorescence material, researchers were able to increase its device lifetime without sacrificing efficiency.
Researchers are now one step closer to the Holy Grail of organic lasers, thanks to a method that significantly reduces efficiency losses.
