2019 MRS Fall Meeting & Exhibit

Tutorial FF03—Aggregation-Induced Emission

Sunday, December 01, 2019
8:30 AM - 5:00 PM
Hynes, Level 2, Room 206

Aggregation-induced emission (AIE) is an influential concept proposed in 2001 for describing a photophysical phenomenon, in which nonemissive molecules in solutions are induced to emit strongly when their intramolecular motion is restricted in aggregate or solid state. The conceptualization of AIE not only breaks the common belief of aggregation-caused quenching, but also provides new mechanistic insights on the light-emitting process of luminogenic aggregates and illuminates the path to the exploration of practically useful luminescent materials for optical, electronic, energy and biomedical applications, such as organic LEDs, solar cells, sensing, imaging and image-guided cancer therapy, etc. The AIE effect can be utilized in all applications involving aggregates.

The tutorial aims to bring the attendees updated information on fundamental AIE research and state-of-the-art applications of AIE luminogens. It is also designed for the experienced AIE researchers to reinforce their knowledge on the scopes of development of new generation of AIE materials, understanding of AIE mechanisms and exploration of advanced technological applications. Eight top experts from seven countries will deliver lectures and consulting sections, providing a unique platform for the attendees to learn from the professionals and foster dynamic and scientific exchange via exciting cross-disciplinary discussions. The tutorials will be conducted using interesting illustrations and simple languages, which will greatly benefit junior researchers and graduate students.
