main objective of the project is the exploration of new combinations of
conductive polymers and supramolecular materials, known as dendrimers, in
photodetectors and electroluminescent materials. This includes both “basic
knowledge” and “technological advances”, and includes the following
The investigation of the exciton dynamics and electron transfer in new molecular
materials based on dendrimers.
The acquisition of
more details about the geometry and internal
structure of fluorescence dye labeled dendrimers, their motion in various
environments, such as solution (liquid and frozen), Langmuir-Blodgett and
self-assembling films, and the bulk state.
(3) The selection, synthesis, and testing of new mixed molecular materials (dendrimers, polyamides, fullerenes, polybenzimidazoles, polyphenylenes, carbazole dyes, etc.) for effective electroluminescent devices and novel photodetectors.
