Summary of "Broad-Band Near-Infrared Doublet Emission in a Tetrathiafulvalene-Based Metal-Organic Framework."

The upper limit in LED quantum efficiency from conventional closed-shell molecules is 25% as dictated by singlet and triplet spin statistics. Spin-doublet organic molecules are attractive candidates to exceed this limit, thanks to their 100% theoretical quantum efficiency in radiative recombination. However, examples of stable spin-doublet molecules in the solid state are rare. Here we show broad-band near-infrared emission in the columnar π-π stacked tetrathiafulvalene in a metal organic framework (MOF) single crystal. The broad emission is similar to known TFT+• doublet emission and is stabilized in the MOF crystal. This interpretation is supported by the observation of enhanced PL emission following UV oxidation of the MOF crystal to increase the doublet concentration. The findings suggest tetrathiafulvalene-based MOFs as promising materials for near-IR light emission and the MOF structure may be a general strategy to stabilize radical cation species in the solid state.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Tunable liquid lasers with organic compounds (i.e., dye) which have a strong absorption band, used as the active medium. During emission, the dye has to be optically excited by another light source (e.g., another laser or flash lamp). The range of the emission wavelength may be anywhere from the ultraviolet to the near infrared (i.e., from 180 to 1100nm). These lasers are operated in continuous wave and pulsed modes.

Non-ionizing electromagnetic energy in the frequency range of 100 gigahertz to 10 terahertz which spans from the mid-INFRARED RAYS frequency to the high-frequency edge of the MICROWAVES band.

A bacterial protein from Pseudomonas, Bordetella, or Alcaligenes which operates as an electron transfer unit associated with the cytochrome chain. The protein has a molecular weight of approximately 16,000, contains a single copper atom, is intensively blue, and has a fluorescence emission band centered at 308nm.

That portion of the electromagnetic spectrum usually sensed as heat. Infrared wavelengths are longer than those of visible light, extending into the microwave frequencies. They are used therapeutically as heat, and also to warm food in restaurants.
