Artificial control of exciplexes opens possibilities for new electronics

Demonstrating a strategy that could form the basis for a new class of electronic devices with uniquely tunable properties, researchers were able to widely vary the emission color and efficiency of organic light-emitting diodes based on exciplexes simply by changing the distance between key molecules in the devices by a few nanometers.
