Since tradition is all important, we celebrated our b-day chair with a traditional Bavarian breakfast, pool (enjoying the day in the sun, playing Volleyball and swimming) and late BBQ with German lectures based on traditional songs, like the “Fliegerlied”.
Last week Mattia and Rubén attended to the workshop on Biogenic Materials and Technologies organized by our common friend Prof. Jesús Berenguer at the U. La Rioja. It was a great experience to discuss science with the excellent groups and to organize future actions together!
Find out more about Sophia’s and Luca’s latest contribution “Dual-Phosphorescent Heteroleptic Silver(I) Complex in Long-Lasting Red Light-Emitting Electrochemical Cells” on Advanced Optical Materials. We report a new complex design strategy towards a dual-phosphorescent, red-emitting silver(I) complex with high electrochemical stability, resulting in long-lasting red light-emitting electrochemical cells.

We and all the collaborators/friends are very grateful for the Royal Society of Chemistry for this honor!
It highlights the most important aspects of our joint effort to solve a 25 years-old challenges.
Read more about Marco´s latest contribution “Fully Biogenic Near-Infrared Phosphors: Phycobiliproteins and Cellulose at Force Toward Highly Efficient and Stable Bio-Hybrid Light-Emitting Diodes” on Advanced Functional Materials. The paper shows the stabilization of the phycobiliprotein smURFP in a novel cellulose-based matrix, achieving stable Near-Infrared Bio-HLEDs.

Congratulations to Luca and Sophia for the new contribution published on Advanced Functional Materials!
Thanks to the collaboration between Kyushu University (Japan), Applied Nanolayers (The Netherlands) and our chair the implementation of dendrimers as emitters in graphene-based lighting devices using biogenic electrolytes has been settled towards sustainable lighting sources.

We were recently honored by the Werner Siemens Foundation (WSS) “Project of the Century” competition winning the first step WSS research prize of 1 million Swiss francs to prepare us for the competition of a research center for 100 millions action. It is a pleasure to participate in this consortium led by Prof. Asseng focused on agricultural research with the ambitious goal on “Revolution of Food Production” where our bio-hybrid lighting and photovoltaic systems will play a major role.
Dr. Mattia Nieddu present the findings of his Marie Curie-funded research on the new generation of FP silica-based Bio-HLED technology through an informative video.
New paper out on Advanced Science about stable Core-shell-structured Fluorescent Protein Nanoparticles for Lighting!
Read more about Mattia’s latest contribution ´´ Core-shell-structured Fluorescent Protein Nanoparticles: New Paradigm Towards Zero-thermal-quenching in High-power Bio-hybrid Light-emitting Diodes´´ on Advanced Science. Here, we describe how to stabilize green-emitting proteins (sfGFP) in a novel silica nanostructure towards long-living green-emitting Bio-HLEDs.
The Central European Research Infrastructure Consortium (CERIC) has recently highlighted our work published in Angewandte together with the group of Prof. Bonifazi.
Many thanks for CERIC for this excellent highlight! We will keep producing excellent results!
