We are very pleased to welcome our new team member Sophia Lipinski (PhD Student).
Her research work focuses on the synthesis, characterization, and implementation of d10 transition metal complexes in light-emitting electrochemical cells.
We are all very happy to host Prof. Dr. Ken Albrecht over this year to reinforce research, mentoring; and teaching.
We are very pleased to welcome our new team member Dr. Olivia Amargós Reyes. Her research work as a EuroTech Postdoc Fellow at our Chair will be focuses on exploiting ionic junctions in large area lighting and photovoltaic devices.
Congratulations to Sara for her last contribution ´´Designing Artificial Fluorescent Proteins: Squaraine-LmrR Biophosphors for High Performance Deep-Red Biohybrid Light Emitting Diodes´´, about a new protein-dye system for long-living and highly efficient deep-red Bio-HLEDs. Check it out here: https://doi.org/10.1002/adfm.202111381
Taking advantage of multivariate analysis to understand how to design [Cu(N^N)(P^P)]+ for the first blue/white light emitting electrochemical cells that were elusive over the last 15 years!
Great honor to participate as plenary speaker in the Italian Photochemistry Meeting 2021 held in Torino!!!
Rubén has discussed our recent results in bio-hybrid light-emitting diodes and solar cells in the GIF conference https://www.moflabunito.com/gif2021.
Fruitful scientific discussions and new collaborations.
Special thanks to Nadia, Andrea, Matteo, Lucia, Polyssena, Marco, Ivana for organizing this excellent conference!!
Our recent work entitled ‚Biogenic fluorescent protein-silk fibroin phosphors for high performing light-emitting diodes‘ (Mater. Horiz., 2020, 7, 1790-1800) has been specially selected by the Materials Horizons and Nanoscale Horizons Community Boards to be featured in a Horizons Community Board collection focusing on optical and photonic materials and devices.
This is a great honor that highlights the high level of interest and quality of our work!
Nature Biotechnology features JP’s work developed at the Cell engineering group (Helmholtz Zentrum München). This paper shows the engineering of a new family of photo-switchable protein sensors for applications in super-resolution fluorescence microscopy and optoacoustic imaging methods. Please enjoy here a less-technical explanation on the article by JP for the general public.
Sara was awarded the Best Presentation Award for her talk „Towards highly stable eco-friendly squaraine-protein phosphors for Bio-HLEDs“, held on the 3rd of June 2021 at EMRS Spring 2021 Meeting.
Congratulations to Elisa and Luca for their last contribution on novel red emitting Copper (I) complexes, toward sustainable white emitting lighting sources. This is a great piece of the great collaboration with Prof. Galliard from U. Caen. The advance article is freely available in Advanced Optical Materials.
