Abstract

This thesis proposes to marry two separate technologies together. The first technology is that of visible light communications (VLC), and the second is small molecule and polymer organic photonic devices. These two technologies both offer outstanding potential in their respective fields of information communications and optoelectronics, with both being proposed as two of the most important technologies about to emerge in the next decades by their respective research communities. As such, it is imperative to investigate and analyse the performance of organic photonic devices in the context of VLC broadcasting networks. There have been no experimental results in the literature reporting on organic-VLC systems until the work proposed in this thesis and therefore the focus is on improving transmission speeds.
