 Date | 25-30 august 2024

 Location | Cap d'Agde

 Website | https://geco64.sciencesconf.org/

 

Ce colloque annuel est d’envergure internationale, tout en favorisant l’expression en langue française. Il rassemble chaque année, pendant une semaine et sur un même site, entre 50 et 80 chimistes professionnels (académiques et industriels, français et étrangers) autour d’une douzaine de conférenci.ères invités prestigieux. Ces hôtes invités présentent leurs travaux les plus marquants lors d’une conférence d’environ une heure. Les participant.es inscrit.es, pour leur part, exposent en 15 minutes leurs travaux les plus récents lors de communications orales. Les thèmes abordés au cours du GECO sont très variés et allient la recherche fondamentale et ses applications en réponse aux défis sociétaux (santé, nutrition, énergie, environnement). Ils incluent systématiquement la synthèse de molécules naturelles et d’analogues, la catalyse, l’étude de nouvelles réactions chimiques et de nouvelles approches technologiques, l’étude de nouveaux modes d’interactions à l’échelle moléculaire et supramoléculaire, l’application de la chimie organique à la biologie, au développement de nouveaux matériaux et à l’énergie. Le concept de développement durable est également une constante des travaux qui sont présentés. En parallèle de ces échanges scientifiques intenses, un temps significatif est réservé à des activités extérieures permettant d'établir des contacts, souvent à l’origine de futures collaborations entre les participant(e)s.

Concentrated micellar solutions exhibit a temperature-induced fluid-to-crystal phase transition. The addition of nanoparticles triggers the formation of polycrystallized micellar micrograins, above the transition temperature, instead of a cubic monocrystal. This transition is associated with the segregation of nanoparticles, which act as impurities, in the interstices between the grains. The purpose of this presentation is to give an overview of the role played by each component. We will describe the thermo-rheological properties of the solutions studied, depending on the concentration of copolymer and nanoparticles. The viscoelastic behavior and its temperature dependence will be discussed. The rheological properties will be discussed in light of additional information obtained from differential calorimetry and structural studies performed on these systems.

Prof. Chihaya Adachi
IPCMS, Strasbourg

Through the extensive R&D of organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) for more than 30 years, plenty of well-elaborated novel organic optoelectronic materials and device architectures have been extensively developed, resulting in the unique commercial utilization of OLEDs for cutting-edge smartphones, large-area TVs, and further new future display applications by taking advantage of light-weight and flexibility.

From the aspect of materials science, the creation of novel light-emitting materials in OLEDs has been the central issue aimed at high electroluminescence quantum efficiency (EQE). Starting from the development of conventional fluorescence materials (1st generation) during 1990-2000th, the room-temperature phosphorescence (2000-) (2nd generation) and thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) (2012-) (3rd generation) continuously pioneered the novel possibilities of organic emitters, resulted in not only high-performance OLEDs but also enriched organic photochemistry. Recently, there have been a wide variety of studies on TADF-OLEDs because of the unlimited possibilities of TADF molecular design. Further, hyperfluorescence (HP)-OLEDs have been developed since they can realize the compatibility of high efficiency and narrow spectral width, which is ideal for practical display applications.

Here we report our recent cutting-edge HP-OLEDs demonstrating high OLED performance by optimizing host, TADF, and terminal emitter (TE) molecules1-3). In particular, we focus on the blue-emission, which can show narrow FWHM and high EL quantum yield. Blue HP-OLEDs based on two new TEs are fabricated, resulting in high external quantum efficiency (EQE) of over 20%, high color purity, and high brightness. By analyzing the transient PL characteristics of the HP-OLEDs, we found the presence of efficient FRET between TADF-assistant dopant (TADF-AD) and TE molecules. Further, transient EL analysis confirmed that a smaller EHOMO difference between TADF-AD and TE efficiently helps to decrease hole trapping inside the emitting layer, hence resulting in a lower efficiency rolloff and a longer operational device lifetime. This report provides a designing principle for a TADF and TE in HP-OLEDs with well-matched energy levels, leading to efficient FRET and no significant carrier trapping.

In his talk, Adachi will mention the importance of the charge transfer (CT) phenomenon in designing high-performance organic luminescent molecules in OLEDs. Also, CT issues play a crucial role in maximizing the device's operation. Further, he will outlook the prospect of advanced CT technologies.
