Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Abstract

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.
