Abstract

original image

Reiche Ernte: Mithilfe eines Organogel-Mediums wurde ein lichtsammelndes System für sichtbares Licht hergestellt (siehe Bild; Einschub: verschiedene Gelmischungen). Durch Mischen von vier unterschiedlichen Perylen-Derivaten in der Gelphase wird ein Energiegradient in den Gelfibrillen erzeugt. Die Nanofasern sammeln die Energie von sichtbarem Licht unterschiedlicher Wellenlänge schrittweise in einer Energiesenke.
