|Outline of Final Research Achievements
Recently, the triplet-triplet annihilation (TTA) based photon up-conversion (UC) process has been extensively studied as a possible device that utilizes solar power because TTA-UC generates high-energy photon emission from absorptions of lower energy photons. TTA-UC process is quite complicated. Thus, one should analyze a series of these processes in parallel to deeply understand the mechanism of TTA-UC.
In this study, we analyze the reaction kinetics of TTA and triplet exciton transfer (TTET) by theoretical calculation based on Marcus theory, which is the basic theory of the reaction kinetics of electron transfer, and clarify the reaction mechanisms of TTA-based up-conversion processes both in solution and in solid phases.
