Article
Polyfluorene-based copolymers such as poly(9,9-dioctylfluorene)-alt-5% (bis-N,N'-(4-butylphenyl)-bis-N,N'-phenyl-1,4-phenylenediamine) (F8-5% BSP) are efficient blue emitting polymers with various electronic phases: F8 blue-emitting glassy phase, F8 ordered more red-emitting β-phase, and F8/BSP charge transfer (CT) state. Polymer light-emitting dev...
Preprint
p>Polymer free volume is a rational concept for interpreting polymer properties connected to the fraction of unoccupied volume. While arbitrary definition of “free volume” often led to controversy, quantitative evaluation of polymer free volume is important for developing membrane materials as well as packing materials for chromatography that adsor...
Article
Poly(9,9-dioctylfluorene) (PFO) is one of the most important conjugated polymer materials, exhibiting outstanding photophysical and electrical properties. PFO is also known for a diversity of morphological phases determined by conformational states of the main chain. Our goal in this work is to address some of the key questions on formation and dyn...
Article
Trivalent lanthanide complexes are an important class of luminescent material characterized by their strong absorption of light by the organic ligands and subsequent energy transfer to the lanthanide ion, realizing intense luminescence from the ion. With this mechanism of luminescence, the total quantum yield of a lanthanide complex is the product...

Article
Perfluorophenyl‐terminated porphyrin self‐assembled into exceptionally large J‐aggregates in methylcyclohexane; a solvophobic effect of methylcyclohexane on perfluoroarene enhanced a self‐complementary quadrupolar interaction between the perfluorophenyl group and the porphyrin ring, and caused nucleation growth of needles. Eventually, the longitudi...
Article
A quadrupolar interaction of porphyrin bearing two pentafluorophenylethynyl terminals (1) drove the formation of a successive one‐dimensional staircase structure, i.e., J‐aggregates, to yield millimeter‐length needles with a single‐crystalline character in methylcyclohexane solution. In contrast, π‐stacked interaction of porphyrin bearing two non‐f...

Suppression of back energy transfer is crucial in realizing efficient luminescent lanthanide complexes. However, the only practical method reported to this day is to raise the energy of the triplet excited state so that back energy transfer is energetically unfavorable, which limits the application where the absorbing wavelength of the organic liga...
Chapter
Spin-orbit coupling is essential in lanthanide complexes for raising the yield of triplet excited state where the energy transfer to lanthanide ion mainly proceeds from, and therefore the sensitization efficiency of the lanthanide ion. However, since spin-orbit coupling mixes states of different multiplicity, strong spin-orbit coupling means that t...
Chapter
Concentration quenching due to energy transfer between lanthanide ions have long been the shortcoming of lanthanide-based compounds, especially for luminescent functionalities like upconversion and multi-emission where energy transfer is necessary. Concentration quenching in lanthanide coordination polymers, on the other hand, is empirically known...
Chapter
The upcoming chapters require that the readers have some background in the theory of lanthanide luminescence and the theory of kinetic analysis. The theory of lanthanide luminescence, or the infamous Judd-Ofelt theory, is one of the most critical development in lanthanide physics and chemistry that allowed great advancement in the understanding of...
Chapter
Photoluminescent materials are used everywhere in our current society from daily lives to industries and research. As simple as it may seem, there are numerous types of photoluminescent materials (each with possibly different luminescence mechanisms), and tremendous amount of effort has been invested in research on these materials, sometimes going...
Chapter
Energy transfer from organic ligands to a lanthanide ion is the main concept of sensitized luminescence in lanthanide complexes. Back energy transfer is the reverse process, which occur when the energy of the triplet excited state is close to the emitting excited state of the lanthanide ion and can lead to decrease in sensitization efficiency and t...
Chapter
Throughout this thesis, various aspects of energy transfer processes in polynuclear lanthanide complexes have been explored. The purpose of this chapter is to present the conclusion of each of the chapters and to summarize them so that the core concept of the thesis can be discussed and concluded. An outlook based on the conclusions of this thesis...
Book
This book describes the luminescence mechanism of polynuclear lanthanide complexes, focusing on energy transfer processes using a combination of experimental and theoretical approaches. Lanthanide complexes show intense luminescence from the lanthanide ion through sensitization by the organic ligands. The high chromaticity of the emission and the l...

Expanded π-systems with a narrow highest occupied molecular orbital–lowest unoccupied molecular orbital band gap encounter deactivation of excitons due to the “energy gap law” and undesired aggregation. This dilemma generally thwarts the near-infrared (NIR) luminescence of organic π-systems. A sophisticated cofacially stacked π-system is known to i...

Article
In luminescent lanthanide (Ln(III)) complexes, the yield and the lifetime of triplet excited state of organic ligands are crucial factors that affect the ligands-to-Ln(III) energy transfer efficiency. Such factors are dependent on spin-orbit coupling induced by the Ln(III) ions that mixes different multiplicity states through heavy atom and paramag...

Photoluminescence of Ce³⁺- and Pr³⁺-activated Sr2GeO4 powders was measured between 17 and 600 K. For both ions strong 4fⁿ⁻¹5dⁿ→4fⁿ (d-f) emission is observed at low temperatures, around 410 nm (Ce³⁺) and 280 nm (Pr³⁺). The Ce³⁺ d-f emission quenches starting at 150 K and disappearing completely just above room temperature. Pr³⁺ d-f luminescence sho...

Article
Phonons are important in energy transfer for compensating the energy mismatch between a donor and an acceptor. In inorganic hosts doped with lanthanides, phonon-assisted energy transfer can lead to quenching by a direct transfer of the energy to the phonon mode of the acceptor lanthanide. We demonstrate that this also applies to lanthanide coordina...

Lanthanide (Ln(III)) complexes form an important class of highly efficient luminescent materials showing characteristic line emission after efficient light absorption by the surrounding ligands. The efficiency is however lowered by back energy transfer from Ln(III) ion to the ligands, especially at higher temperatures. Here we report a new strategy...

Question
I've sometimes encountered this phenomenon where I get an opposite arrow for transition between MOs when I do excited state calculation in Gaussian16.
I get something like :
56 -> 58
57 -> 58
57 <- 58
(57 is HOMO and 58 is LUMO)
What does this mean? It seems strange that I am seeing a transition from LUMO to HOMO.
Question
I am looking for several ways to determine the crystallographic axes on the crystal.
I have a crystal on a quartz slip, and I want to know which lattice plane I am looking at when I look at one plane of the crystal. I do have CIF data for the crystal.
I know one way is to see the x-ray diffraction pattern of the one particular crystal with the incident x-ray propagating to the direction I want to determine the plane for. However, this is not possible when I have it on a quartz slip.
Is there any other way I can determine this?
