Marco won the ‘Wissenschaftspreis Straubing 2022’. This price is awarded to students and scientists working at the Competence Center for Renewable Resources and have drawn attention to themselves through special achievements and outstanding dissertation or master’s thesis. Marco was awarded for his master’s thesis focused on the implementation of new fluorescent proteins and biopolymers in hybrid LEDs under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Rubén D. Costa at the Chair of Biogenic Functional Materials (TUM Campus Straubing).
Rubén had the opportunity to give a small insight into our research to a wide audience. He was featured in the show „alles wissen“ on hr-fernsehen.
Here you can find the link to view his part in the show:
It is a great honor that our recent publication in Adv. Mater. has been highlighted by several social media!
Below you can find a nice description on our recent on using multivarite analysis to design first class blue and white copper(I) complexes for ionic based thin film lighting devices.
Enjoy the read…more is coming soon.
Rubén hold a lecture on the strategies towards sustainable thin-film lighting systems in the SFB-Kolloquium organized by the U. Heidelberg.
Fruitful scientific discussions with old collaborators (Prof. Kivala and Mastalerz) and new collaborations on going.
Special thanks to Milan for organizing this excellent time!!
Eine kostengünstige und einfach herzustellende Beleuchtungstechnik kann mit lichtemittierenden elektrochemischen Zellen erfolgen. Bei solchen Zellen handelt es sich um elektronische und ionische Dünnschichtbauteile, die nach Anlegen einer niedrigen Spannung Licht erzeugen. Forschende haben jetzt mit Hilfe einer umfangreichen Datenanalyse aus Kupfer-Komplexen erstklassige elektrochemische Zellen geschaffen, die blaues und weißes Licht emittieren.
Thanks to the fruitful collaboration with Universidad de La Rioja, a new family of sustainable and biogenic electrolytes for lighting has been introduced! Our cellulose-based active layer showed high performance and self-stability.
We are very pleased to welcome our new team member Ginevra Giobbio.
She is a PhD student working under the supervision of both Dr. Sylvain Gaillard (University of Caen, France) and Prof. Dr. Rubén D. Costa (Technische Universität München, Germany). This shared project aims at developing new electroluminescent earth abundant transition metal complexes and their implementation in light-emitting electrochemical cells (LEC).
We employed chalcogen-bonded p-type semiconducting ribbons as hole transport layers in light-emitting electrochemical cells achieving on par performances with state-of-art semiconductors! Thanks to the great collaboration and the European funding ITN-ETN project STiBNite.

Dr. Kumer and Dr. Zieleniewska have been awarded with the MSCA fellowship to work on designing new emitters for thin-film lighting devices and dual devices for light and temperature management, respectively. In addition, another fellow is on the reserve list. We keep finger crossed!!
Thanks to the European Commission for funding these new idea!
Rubén has been accepted as European Climate Pact Ambassador with a strong commitment in education to all public on climate action. In this context, we have already prepared a TUM Campus Straubing pledge. The range of pledges is extremely varied, seeking to address climate change, environmental degradation and, more broadly, sustainability.
