Title Opto-Electronically Efficient Conjugated Polymers by Stress-Induced Molecular Constraints.
Publication Date Jul 2012
Media Count 49p
Personal Author A. C. Yang
Abstract This is the final report dealing with the dramatic enhancement of optoelectronic efficiencies of conjugated polymers induced by segmental stresses discovered by the researcher, which was further studied in various fundamental facets of this important property in addition to some major breakthroughs in the road for real applications. The influences of chain conformations influenced by molecular stresses were investigated in the single- molecule systems of MEH-PPV brushes and pancakes grafted on silane-primed substrates.
