Interaction of Components in Molecular Optoelectronics for the Next Generation of IT Devices
Authors: Heinz Langhals
The interaction of molecular optoelectronic components on the molecular scale were studied where the solvent shell indicating the influence of the medium was found to be surprisingly small. The transport of energy as resonant energy transfer covers distances of about 5 nm and was shown not to proceed by a simple to dipole dipole interaction with typical restrictions, but by a more complex mechanism. Furthermore, a novel-type of far-reaching interactions of electronically excited structures until macroscopic dimensions were fond and may be applied for addressing molecular structures by conventional electronics.
