Breaking the Brightness Barrier: University of St. Andrews Develops Revolutionary Light-Emitting Materials

In a groundbreaking research project, the University of St. Andrews has introduced a fresh approach to designing efficient light-emitting materials. Led by the Organic Semiconductor Centre in the School of Physics and Astronomy, and the School of Chemistry, the project aims to improve the efficiency of televisions, computer screens, and lighting systems. The research findings have been published in a recent paper in Nature.

Light-emitting materials are essential components of organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs), commonly used in mobile phone displays, smartwatches, televisions, and automotive lighting. The latest generation of emitter materials being developed have demonstrated high efficiency at low brightness levels but face challenges with reduced efficiency as brightness is increased, particularly for lighting and outdoor applications.

The decline in efficiency at higher brightness levels is known as ‘efficiency roll-off.’ The research team led by Professors Ifor Samuel and Eli Zysman-Colman has identified the necessary material characteristics to address this issue. Their guidelines will assist OLED researchers in developing materials that can maintain high efficiency at increased brightness levels, facilitating the use of advanced materials in displays, lighting, and medical applications.

According to Professor Zysman-Colman, the research findings provide valuable insights into the relationship between material properties and OLED performance. Professor Samuel added that their innovative approach offers a solution to developing bright, efficient, and colorful OLEDs that consume less power.

The promising outcomes of this research suggest that the industry may soon show interest in implementing these advancements. Improved efficiency and enhanced light output could lead to cost-effective LED solutions in various electronic devices, benefiting consumers and industries alike.
