Strong correlations are not important in phosphorescent organometallic complexes

What is it about?

Phosphorescent organometallic complexes are light emitting materials that combine organic and metallic components. Varying these components lets you tune their colour and brightness. Metal components usually imply that strong correlations are significant. We show that strong correlations are not important in describing the variation in brightness and colour.

Why is it important?

To produce useful materials for making light emitting devices, one would like to have a set of design principles to guide you. By showing that strong correlations are not important, we simplify the set of requirements one needs to consider.
