Title: Recent Advances in Organic Optoelectronics Presenter: Professor Dr HUANG Wei
Location: LKM Theatre (AIIM Facility, Innovation Campus)
Abstract: In the past decades, organic optoelectronics has made great progress both in fundamental studies and commercial applications because of their excellent properties, such as solution processable, printable, flexible, low-cost and able to be made at large area. Our recent work is devoted to the development of high-performance organic semiconductors for organic optoelectronics. We will present our recent advancement on rational molecular design of organic semiconductors for organic light-emitting diodes, lasers, memories, chemo-/biosensors, latest research results about ultralong organic phosphorescence and colour display technologies.
