Title (EN) OPTICALLY UPCONVERTING LIQUID-FILLED POLYMERIC MATERIALS
(FR) MATÉRIAUX POLYMÈRES REMPLIS DE LIQUIDE À CONVERSION OPTIQUEMENT ASCENDANTE
Abstract:
(EN) Optically upconverting liquid-filled polymeric materials that are made by curing a curable composition. The materials include a substantially liquid phase that serves to dissolve upconverting chromophores, optionally surfactants and an optionally cross-linked polymer matrix that retains or houses the liquid phase, provides mechanical stability, and offers some protection from oxygen. The optically upconverting liquid-filled polymeric materials have a phase-separated morphology. In preferred embodiments, the domains formed by the two phases are so small that light scattering is largely suppressed, which renders the upconverting liquid-filled polymeric materials largely transparent. The liquid phase provides a high mobility of the dissolved chromophores and the photophysical properties, such as the high upconversion quantum efficiency and the low excitation intensity threshold required to achieve upconverison, are thus more reminiscent of conventional or oxygen-free solutions than polymeric solids. These photophysical properties can be achieved by preparing the polymers under oxygen-free or, in preferred embodiments, under ambient conditions. The design principle introduced here to create upconverting liquid-filled polymeric materials is versatile and general; the liquid phase, the surfactants, the polymer matrix, and the upconverting chromophores can all readily be varied. Importantly, the optically upconverting liquid-filled polymeric materials can be prepared in a one-step process, which makes them preferable over other liquid-containing polymers that enable upconversion.
(FR) L'invention concerne des matériaux polymères remplis de liquide à conversion optiquement ascendante qui sont obtenus par durcissement d'une composition durcissable. Les matériaux comprennent une phase sensiblement liquide qui sert à dissoudre des chromophores à conversion ascendante, éventuellement des tensioactifs et éventuellement une matrice polymère réticulée qui retient ou loge la phase liquide, confère une stabilité mécanique et offre une certaine protection contre l'oxygène. Les matériaux polymères remplis de liquide à conversion optiquement ascendante présentent une morphologie à phases séparées. Dans des modes de réalisation préférés, les domaines formés par les deux phases sont si petits que la diffusion de la lumière est largement supprimée, suite à quoi les matériaux polymères remplis de liquide à conversion optiquement ascendante sont en grande partie transparents. La phase liquide utilise une mobilité élevée des chromophores dissous et les propriétés photophysiques, telles que la grande efficacité quantique de conversion ascendante et le faible seuil d'intensité d'excitation nécessaire pour obtenir la conversion ascendante, évoquent donc plutôt des solutions classiques ou sans oxygène que des solides polymères. Ces propriétés photophysiques peuvent être obtenues par préparation des polymères dans des conditions sans oxygène ou, dans des modes de réalisation préférés, dans des conditions ambiantes. Le principe de conception introduit ici pour créer les matériaux polymères remplis de liquide à conversion ascendante est polyvalent et général ; la phase liquide, les tensioactifs, la matrice polymère et les chromophores de conversion ascendante peuvent tous être facilement modifiés. De manière importante, les matériaux polymères remplis de liquide à conversion optiquement ascendante peuvent être préparés dans un procédé en une étape, ce qui les rend préférables à d'autres polymères contenant des liquides qui permettent une conversion ascendante.
