The mission of Team Adrestia was to work together with Molecular Glasses to engineer an atmospherically controlled box in which the degradation of novel OLED materials could be conducted. This would be achieved by removing undesirable environmental elements from the atmosphere and focusing short wavelength UV radiation on the test materials at given controllable temperatures. The effect would then be examined using a fluorimeter to determine the sustainability of the OLED material.
