An inspiring report entitled Pressure-induced Emission was given by Prof. Bo Zhou in Wuhan Optoelectronics Forum No. 189, which was on 25thAugust, 2023 in the Auditorium C111 at Wuhan National Laboratory for Optoelectronics (WNLO). Prof. Guoli Tu chaired the forum and Prof. Peixiang Lu, Executive Deputy Director of WNLO awarded the forum medal to Prof. Bo Zhou.
Prof. Zou introduced the concept of pressure-induced emission (PIE) by incorporating the dimension of pressure and explaining how high pressure, as a unique thermodynamic parameter and extreme condition, can effectively control the crystal and electronic structures of materials. The report provides a detailed account of the method employed to bring a series of high-pressure luminescent phases to ambient pressure by adjusting the potential energy barrier of chemical reactions. This approach resolves the debate surrounding the origin of high-wavenumber blue light in indium-based double perovskites by utilizing high pressure to eliminate the contribution of free exciton recombination. The physical mechanism of singlet-excited emission recombination in the self-trapped state is elucidated, along with the use of high pressure to drive the transition from the triplet state of the trapped exciton to the singlet state. This enhances the recombination probability of singlet-state excitons, ultimately leading to the transformation of self-trapped excitons from a "dark state" to a "bright state" accompanied by delayed fluorescence under higher pressure. Based on this concept, Prof. Zou introduced other research works undertaken by his group in recent years, which provided new ideas and methods for preparing chemical materials with specific functions.
After the report, there was a deep two-way exchange and discuss between the audience and Prof. Zou Bo about the change laws of material properties under high pressure, the extension application of related technologies in other fields, and other issues.
