Live: NIR app for OLED

Please join Edinburgh Instruments and Professor Pi Tai Chou (NTU) for a photoluminescence webinar on NIR Applications for OLEDs.

We are delighted to introduce Professor Pi Tai Chou, Chair Professor of the Chemistry Department, and Director of the Center for Emerging Material and Advanced Devices, at National Taiwan University.

Professor Chou gained his Ph.D. in Chemistry and Biochemistry from Florida State University, and was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California at Berkeley. He is also fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC) and the recipient of a number of awards, including Taiwan Outstanding Research Awards, Academic Achievement Awards, National Chair Awards, International Asian and Oceanian Photochemistry

Association (APA) Award (Japan) and The World Academy Sciences (TWAS) Chemistry Prize. We hope you can join us to learn more!

3 July 2020
Dr. Stuart Thomson, Edinburgh Instruments Application Scientist
Applications of Photoluminescence Spectroscopy in Materials Science
Time – TBA. Talks will last for 40-45 minutes.

Photoluminescence spectroscopy is one of the most powerful, versatile and accessible characterisation techniques available to material scientists. In this webinar, we will present how steady-state and time-resolved photoluminesce spectroscopy can be applied for the characterisation of a range of prominent materials classes. This will include the investigation of next-generation photovoltaic materials such as perovskites, TADF emitters for improved light-emitting diodes and novel materials for upconversion emission

Professor Chan Yang-Hsiang
National Chiao Tung University
Recording (NIR-II)
Time – TBA

Please join Edinburgh Instruments and Professor Chan Yang-Hsiang (NCTU) for a photoluminescence webinar on Applications in the NIR-II region.

Professor Chan’s research is focussed on the development of semiconducting polymer dots with blue to near-infrared fluorescence (NIR-II) for bioimaging and analytical detection, preparation of polymer dots for material science, as well as investigation of plasmon enhanced photoluminescence for point-of-care biomarker detection.

Professor Chan was awarded the Best Article Award in JCCS for 2019, as well as a number of distinguished research awards, and was recently interviewed by Nature for the successful development of a brand-new type of semiconducting polymer nanoparticle for biological applications and analytical detections.

Professor Chien Yi-Hsin
Feng Chia University
Live (Upconversion)
Time – TBA

Please join Edinburgh Instruments and Professor Yi-Hsin Chien (FCU) for a photoluminescence webinar on Up-conversion Applications.

Professor Chien is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Feng Chia University, focussing her research on nanocomposite material fabrication, surface chemistry and nanoparticles architectural design, as well as various optical sensing techniques. Recent publications include ‘Up-conversion and down-conversion nanoparticles for biophotonics and nanomedicine’ and ‘Advanced Near‐Infrared Light‐Responsive Nanomaterials as Therapeutic Platforms for Cancer Therapy’. We hope to see you there.

 9 July 2020

Dr. Anna Gakamsky, Edinburgh Instruments Applications Scientist
New Trends in Fluorescence Spectroscopy: Applications to Life Sciences
Time – TBA. Talks will last for 40-45 minutes.

Fluorescence spectroscopy is one of the most powerful, sensitive, and widely used analytical methods in life sciences. In this webinar, we will discuss the use of the FS5 and FLS spectrometers of Edinburgh Instruments for spectral and lifetime measurements in biological systems. We will also discuss how these instruments can be used in the development of new probes for biological sensing and imaging, including quantum dots and organic semiconducting NIR-II emitters.

21 July 2020
Professor Shih-Sheng Sun
Academia Sinica

Time – TBA

Please join Edinburgh Instruments and Professor Shih-Sheng Sun (Academia Sinica) for a photoluminescence webinar on Stimuli-responsive Fluorescent Materials.

 Professor Sun gained his PhD in Northwestern University in the USA, and now sits as the Deputy Director in the Institute of Chemistry at Academia Sinica, focusing his research on Molecular Recognition and Chemical Sensing, Supramolecular assemblies of p-conjugated systems, and light harvesting materials for Solar Cells. Professor Sun will present his recent research into Stimuli-responsive fluorescent materials, opening a way for the development of novel organic luminescent solids that can be switched on and off by external stimuli.

22 July 2020

Professor Lu Chin-Wei
Providence University
Live (TADF)

Time – TBA

Please join Edinburgh Instruments and Professor Chin-Wei Lu (PU) for a photoluminescence webinar on Thermally Activated Delayed Fluorescence (TADF).

 Professor Lu is an Associate Professor at Providence University, focussing their research on organic optoelectronic materials and devices. TADF has seen a resurgence in research attention since 2012, as a mechanism for increasing the efficiency of emitting devices with improved manufacturing conditions, and Professor Lu’s research contributes strongly in this area. Recent publications including ‘Combinational Approach To Realise Highly Efficient Light-Emitting Electrochemical Cells’ and ‘Facile generation of thermally activated delayed fluorescence and fabrication of highly efficient non-doped OLEDs based on triazine derivatives’. We look forward to welcoming you.
