Scientists want to find ways to improve on the quality of light that light-emitting diodes (LEDs) produce, to reduce their cost, and to make them environmentally friendlier. A team including Zhichao Hu and Jing Li of Rutgers University has made progress on those goals in its design of a new white LED. The researchers started by developing a family of tetraphenylethylene-based chromophores that luminesce at different wavelengths. They then linked chromophores together . . .
