Hearing colour and seeing sound – switchable optoacoustic imaging agents

Optoacoustic imaging is a new medical imaging technique. It utilises laser light to excite an imaging agent, which in turn converts this light energy into heat. This heat is dissipated as a sound wave, which can be detected with an ultrasound receiver. This technique aims to overcome the minimal penetration depth of fluorescence imaging, and the lack of molecular specificity of ultrasound.In this project we are aiming to develop and synthesize intelligent imaging agents for optoacoustics, which are able to …

Consumer reactions to voice-based AI

Artificial intelligence increasingly allows marketers to manipulate video and audio materials in a manner that has been restricted to still pictures in the past. Yet little is known about how consumers engage with and react to marketing content that consumers know has been manipulated in this fashion. For instance, for whom, when and why do interactions with voice-based AI (e.g. Google Duplex, Healed through A.I.) reduce purchase intentions. Building on research from interpersonal interactions (Lechner & Mathmann, 2020) and motivational …

Programming polymers

Radical polymerisations play a key role in both commercial and fundamental research with it being in 45% of international polymer production at 100 million tons per year.However, radical polymerisations still suffer from synthetic drawbacks, such as all-carbon polymer backbones, which prevent their (bio)degradability.In this project, we'll develop novel polymers which can be programmed towards controlled degradability.Towards this goal, you'll develop a polymerisation technique that allows to incorporate small natural building blocks (i.e. peptides) into synthetic polymers. These peptide sequences will …

Highly fluorescent and brighter emitters for next generation flexible OLEDs and displays

Display devices are composed of an array of organic light emitting diodes (OLED) in the form of pixels (red, blue, green). Such devices are present in various electronic appliances, including:mobile phonestabletstelevisionssmart packaging productswearable productsautomobile dashing boards.Currently, inorganic light emitting diodes (LEDs) control the display market, but this technology has some limitations such as:high fabrication costlarger area processinglimited to rigid products.The next generation of devices are expected to be flexible and stretchable so they can be used for future rollable televisions …
