Clint van Hoesel

Master Student


Clint van Hoesel obtained his B.Sc. degree in Applied Physics from the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), The Netherlands in 2019. He then obtained his M.Sc. degree in Applied Physics with a specialization in Bio-Nanotechnology and a Theory for Technology acknowledgement in 2021. He wrote his master thesis under the supervision of prof. dr. Peter Bobbert on the modelling of triplet-triplet annihilation (TTA) using Master equations. They found novel closure techniques for the efficient modelling of TTA within organic light-emitting diode (OLED) devices. For his external internship he went to the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) where he incorporated molecular orbitals into graph neural networks for the determining of inverted singlet-triplet gaps for OLED applications under the supervision of jun.-prof. dr. Pascal Friederich.

In January of 2022 he started his PhD project under the supervision of prof. dr. Peter Bobbert within the Molecular Materials and Nanosystems research group at the TU/e. He is one of the PhD students linked to the Suppressing Exciton Quenching in OLEDs: an Integrated Approach (SEQUOIA) project. This project is carried out in collaboration with the Vrije Universteit Amsterdam, SCM, Merck and Simbeyond.

Currently he is using software for modelling OLED systems from the molecular scale (provided by SCM) to the device scale (provided by Simbeyond) and combining these methods in order find ways to suppress triplet-polaron quenching (TPQ). The end goal is to provide more efficient OLEDs with increased lifetimes.
