Macrocyclic Emitters

Triplet-active Macrocycle

In Ray’s research group, students actively explore and develop macrocyclic TADF/RTP materials—a fascinating area of study at the intersection of chemistry and photonics. Macrocyclic compounds, characterized by their cyclic structures with confinement space, offer unique advantages in luminescent materials. The group focuses on functionalizing macrocyclic structures, allowing for the fine-tuning of their triplet harnessing properties. The group aims to tailor the materials for targeted applications by introducing specific functional segment, enhancing their versatility and performance.

Energy Cascade

The potential applications of macrocyclic PL materials span a wide range of fields. From sensing and energy cascade to light-emitting devices and drug delivery systems, Ray’s research group aims to unlock the practical utility of these materials in real-world scenarios. Exploiting the supramolecular chemistry, the group investigates the encapsulation of guest molecules to create dynamic systems. This research avenue opens up possibilities for efficient energy harvesting and light emitting materials via energy transfer (energy cascade) and photocatalytic applications, where changes in the host environment influence energy and/or electron transfer behavior.
