Discovering New Materials for Organic Light-Emitting Diodes

Victor Montes

I became interested in the photosciences after completing my undergraduate studies. By then I was already extremely interested in the field of organic electronics. Since there is a significant amount of photophysics involved with the basic processes of photovoltaics and organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs), my interest in photochemistry rose quickly.

I learned about the Center got Photochemical Sciences through scientists from my country, Venezuela, who recommended this Ph.D. program at BGSU. Later, I reviewed their website and found additional information about the center and the program. I arrived at Bowling Green in August 2002.

Full color OLED display for digital camerasI work in Dr. Pavel Anzenbacher’s research group. We develop novel materials for application in organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). OLEDs represent by far the most promising technology for fabrication of efficient full-color flat panel displays. This technology has reached a stage where single-color car radios and mobile devices are being produced, and a full color display has already been released in digital cameras. Nevertheless, widespread commercialization of these displays relies on the successful development of materials that provide high quality red, green, and blue (RGB) colors.
