    Polymer Molecules Fluoresce After Chemical Adjustments

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    ETH Zurich researchers have introduced a method that relies on chemical adjustments occurring in fluorescent organic polymer molecules to generate a broad palette of color. The approach is an alternative to mixing different molecules to achieve precise color tuning in organic fluorescent dyes.

    The outcomes of both processes are necessary to biomedical imaging techniques and display technology, both of which require molecular fluorescence and the emission of color. The chemical method using polymer molecules rather than dye molecules, however, offers advantages in solar power concentration; the polymers would be able to collect sunlight more efficiently than current commonly used molecules.

    According to ETH Zurich’s Yinyin…
