Organometallic Luminescence contains ground-breaking research from the author's own investigation into the Alq3 material, based on years of experiments, the results of which initially escaped any logical explanation. The book describes a simple method based on photoluminescence to observe optical properties in Alq3. Then it describes the optical properties of absorption and long decay from theoretical and experimental perspectives. Both the methods and the approach to analysis can be applied to other organic materials utilized in optoelectronics applications.
Organometallic Luminescence will be of interest to both early career and advanced researchers focused on the theoretical and experimental aspects of optoelectronics research.
