The overall objective of the HEROS project is to develop highly efficient phosphorescent organic emitters at room temperature. The ability of metal?free organic molecule to function as an efficient phosphorescent emitter at room?temperature is attractive alternative to organometallic phosphors and enables a wide range of applications including high?contrast bioimaging, high?sensitivity oxygen optical sensing and etc.
Projects funded by the Research Council of Lithuania (RCL), Projects carried out by researchers’ teams
In order to develop room?temperature phosphorescent (RTP) materials, the following scientific and technical objectives are targeted: (1) the design and synthesis of novel, highly RTP emitters; (2) the selection of polymer hosts and combining it with new RTP emitters; (3) the gain of knowledge on RTP through the photophysical studies of rationally designed series of molecules, selection of the materials for sensoric application.
Period of project implementation: 2017-09-01 - 2019-08-31
