Light Emitting Devices (LEDs) are amongst the most widespread devices used in modern technology, with applications ranging from video displays to telecommunication signalling. This project is focused on the design and preparation of luminescent rare earths compounds, and their use as active materials for the fabrication of LEDs. Following an innovative approach, the luminescent lanthanoid complexes will be coordinated to ligands able to conduct electrical charges. Different techniques such as spin coating, vacuum deposition, and lithography, will be assessed for the fabrication of the devices. The expected outcomes will be the preparation of LEDs characterised by a significantly improved performance in terms of electroluminescence.
