Interference-free cabling

Long lines for distributed loads can emit and be susceptible to interference which can affect the connected loads. However, the loads work without disruption as long as a few basic rules are observed when it comes to cabling. Moderndevices and systems are generally complex, their electrical/electronic

Harnessing Hopping Hydrogens for High-Efficiency OLEDs

Excited-state intramolecular proton transfer (ESIPT) makes possible organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) that are highly efficient by creating the necessary conditions to enable thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF). After excitation of the emitting molecule, a hydrogen atom -- technically, just its nucleus -- is transferred to a different atom in the same molecule through a process called ESIPT. The reconfigured molecule can then undergo TADF to convert a high fraction of the excitations into light. Following emission, the molecule returns to its original state. This mechanism increases the molecular design strategies available for the creation of novel and improved light-emitting materials.

Renewed investigation of a molecule that was originally synthesized with the goal of creating a unique light-absorbing pigment has led to the establishment of a novel design strategy for efficient light-emitting molecules with applications in next-generation displays and lighting. Researchers at Kyushu
