Fluorescent red-emitting BODIPY oligofluorene star-shaped molecules as a color converter material for visible light communications
MetadataShow full item record
Star-shaped organic semiconductors with boron dipyrromethene (BODIPY) cores are color-conversion materials for blue LED-based visible light communications. The difference between 0 and 1 bits is resolved in colour-converted data links at 100 Mb s−1. The BODIPY modulation bandwidth is eight times higher than that measured using conventional phosphor color converters.
