Use of metalnanoshells to impede the photo-oxidation of conjugated polymer
AuthorHalas, Nancy J.; Hale, Gregory David
The present invention relates to incorporating metal nanoshells specifically designed to interact with triplet excitons in polymers. By interacting with triplet excitons, the rate of photo-oxidation can be slowed and the density of luminescence-quenching traps can be reduced.
