Research Associate TADF based OLEDs

A Research Associate’s position has become available in the Physics Department, working within the group of Professor Monkman on a new generation of TADF based OLEDs. The project is funded by H2020 project HyperOLED. Work will include detailed time resolved optical measurements using various emission and induced absorption techniques in the femtosecond to microsecond time regimes, modelling of the optical processes to aid development of new materials (that will be synthesised in the Chemistry Department by another RA funded on the project). The project is multidisciplinary and you will work very closely with the RA based in the Chemistry Department as well as the other project partners at Merck in Darmstadt, MicroOLED in Grenoble and the IOF Fraunhofer in Jena. The project is based in Durham’s recent work on thermally activated delayed fluorescence and 100% efficient OLEDs base on TADF. Detailed studies of this triplet harvesting process including kinetics, dynamics and quantum efficiency will be made and new directions explored for OLED devices yielding high efficiency without heavy metal complexes.
