Schrödinger and Kyushu University announce research collaboration

Schrödinger will work the Adachi group to apply and extend the software capabilities for next-generation OLED materials analysis to enable high throughput simulation and virtual screening to prioritise the most promising solutions

5 Mar 2015 | Editor

Schrödinger Inc. has announced that the company will be collaborating with Professor Chihaya Adachi of Japan’s Kyushu University, to advance the development and design of organic electronics.

Professor Adachi is the Director of OPERA (Center for Organic Photonics and Electronics Research), a large multi-disciplinary team of physicists, chemists, and engineers from both academia and industry.

Professor Chihaya Adachi is pioneering a new technology known as thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) opening the possibility of 100% quantum efficiency in converting electricity to light using simple organic molecules without any heavy metals.

Schrödinger will work closely with the Adachi group to apply and extend the software capabilities for next-generation OLED materials analysis to enable high throughput simulation and virtual screening to prioritise the most promising systems to pursue experimentally.

Professor Adachi, said, "We rely heavily on computational chemistry analysis,." Professor Adachi, added, "Schrödinger’s Materials Science Suite makes setting up calculations very simple and we can explore many more systems that we couldn’t before, which I believe will have a significant impact on the speed of innovation in discovering new organic materials."
Dr. Mathew D. Halls, Schrödinger’s Executive Director of Materials Science, said, "Professor Adachi has taken OLED materials research in a new direction that holds great promise. It’s an honor to collaborate with him; we look forward to applying our solutions in this very exciting and fast-moving area of OLED materials research."
