Liquid fluorescents play a role in many materials of today but have traditionally had a limitation when turned into a solid form. Researchers at Indiana University and the University of Copenhagen have created a new material, transforming liquid fluorescent dyes into solid, while maintaining brightness at levels never before possible. This breakthrough could dramatically improve the clarity of displays, the efficiency of solar panels, and revolutionize laser usage in medical procedures.

We are joined by Professor Amar Flood, a co-creator of this new material.
