Project description

English EN

Developing energy-efficient lighting of the future

In the quest for more efficient lighting, the current best alternative to conventional light bulbs is the inorganic light-emitting diode (LED). White organic LEDs are being developed that use multiple luminescent substances called luminophores in a single device. This causes imbalanced white-light emission and colour instability. Efforts have been made to overcome these drawbacks but this involves complex synthetic procedures. The EU-funded Lefko-Phos project aims to introduce easy-to-synthesise compounds that display dual emission for white-light generation from a single molecular entity. Their strategy involves generating blue and orange emission at the same time. The project will open the way to more energy-efficient lighting in the future.
