A Japanese research team headed by Dr. Takashi Nakanishi of the National Institute for Materials Science developed a nonvolatile liquid material which emits white light at room temperature.

Because lighting devices account for about 20% of all electric power consumption, innovative materials and technological improvements are desired in order to reduce emissions of greenhouse effect gases (GHG). In particular, high expectations are placed on organic materials which emit white light as a …………… continues on Phys.Org
