Rational design of a high-efficiency, multivariate metal–organic framework phosphor for white LED bulbs

Excitation of LMOF-305 with light polarized parallel to the c axis. Photon absorbance induces electron transfer from tcbpe to tcbpe-F, followed by emission resulting from radiative relaxation of the electron from tcbpe-F back to tcbpe.
