New contribution about our red-emitting silver(I) complex for LECs is out now

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.

On the race to WSS100 !!

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.

Congrats to Mattia and Jesús for the Bioeconomy Innovation Award !!

Congrats to Mattia and Jesús for the Bioeconomy Innovation Award !!

Mattia and Jesús were recently awarded with the international Bioeconomy Innovation Award to explore new horizons in their research fields: hybrid silica-enzymes and smart microbicides. This is a great opportunity to foster their careers.
As they said: “If someone ever had told us that we would get the opportunity to develop a “saving the planet” project along with top researchers at TUM based on a brainstorm session, we would not have believed it. This Interdisciplinary PostDoc day Bioeconomy Innovation Award we celebrated at TUMCS is making it possible.”
