General description

Poly(9,9-di-n-octylfluorenyl-2,7-diyl) (PFO) is a blue light emitting fluorescent polymer with high electroluminescence quantum yield and chemical stability. It can form an emissive layer on the surface of the optoelectronic devices.

Application

PFO can be used as a phase separated polymer that interacts with the conducting probes to define the effect of noise sources on σ-conjugated charge carriers. It is used to disperse single walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs), which can be further used in the fabrication of field-effect transistors (FETs).

Light-emitting Polymers

LEPs enable a wide range of important applications including sensors, flexible LED displays and lighting devices, optical pump lasers, and potentially polymer diode lasers.

Polymer-Sorted Semiconducting Carbon Nanotubes for Transistors and Solar Cells

Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are promising materials for use in the active channel of field-effect transistors (FETs), photoabsorbing layers of solar cells and photodetectors because of their ultrafast charge transport mobility.

Stretchable Electroluminescent Devices

Dr. Tan and researcher introduce recent trends in Self-healing Soft Electronic Materials and Devices. The emergence of smart, functional SHPs will be highly beneficial to the advancement of the next-generation self-healing soft electronic devices. Autonomously self-healing devices could help to minimize the need for repair or replacement of electronics and machines, potentially reducing the cost of materials and reducing electronic waste.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
