Congratulations to Helen Tunstall-Garcia whose first paper co-authored with Bethan Charles and Rachel Evans has been published in Advanced Photonics Research. Their review is entitled “The Role of Polyhedral Oligomeric Silsesquioxanes in Optical Applications”.
In this review the authors examine the use of polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes (POSS) for photonic applications, such as sensing, bioimaging, and optoelectronic devices. They describe the benefits of POSS (including acting as a passivating agent and preventing lumophore aggregation) and explore potential areas for future development (including in LEDs and as templating molecules for upconversion applications).
