Eindhoven's Technical University (TU/e) announced a new project called SEQUOIA that aims to develop a strategy for the suppression of exciton quenching in OLED devices.

Exciton quenching, caused due to unwanted interactions among excitons and between excitons and charges, causes the efficiency of OLEDs to drop as brightness increases. The researchers hope to develop new materials and new OLED design to suppress (or hopefully eliminate entirely) this problem.

The project, funded by the EU, has a total budget of 900,000 Euro. The project is led by TU/e, and also includes VU Amsterdam, Merck and simulation software developers Simbeyond and SCM.
