An overview of the European Social Fund Project „Design and study of glass forming low molecular weight organic materials for photonics” 2013/0045/1DP/

Dr.phys. Aivars Vembris (ISSP UL)

The project is carrying out in close cooperation with Riga Technical University Material Science and Applied Chemistry and its duration is 23 months.

The scientific goal of the project is synthesis and investigation of physical properties of low molecular weight compound, which make amorphous thin films by wet casting method. Original low molecular weight organic glasses have been synthesized and there nonlinear optical, light-emitting, holographic recording properties have been investigated. Additional quantum chemical calculations have been made. This is an interdisciplinary project combining physics, chemistry and material science.

Project activities and achievements will be presented.
