|Outline of Final Research Achievements
This KAKENHI project pertains to the technology of photon upconversion (UC) that converts low energy photons (longer-wavelength lights) into higher energy photons (shorter-wavelength lights). In this project, creations of solid-form (crystals, poly-crystalline films) UC materials were pursued. Specifically, high-efficiency and stable organic solids was pursued by actively controlling thermal factors such as temperature and thermodynamic variables. Consequently, development of organic solids that emits clearly eye-recognizable UC photons were achieved. Furthermore, properties of the developed samples were elucidated by measurements and the mechanism of the sample stability was investigated and understood.
