Design and study of glass forming low molecular weight organic materials for photonics (2013 - 2015)

 

Duration of the project: 01.10.2013. – 31.08.2015.

ESF Number: 2013/0045/1DP/1.1.1.2.0/13/APIA/VIAA/018

About the project

Within the framework of the project a new scientific group will be formed at the UL Agency (ISSP UL) of the Institute of Solid State Physics, University of Latvia, in cooperation with Riga Technical University, in addition additional human resources of 6,30 PLE. The group will consist of 2 new scientists, 1 degree candidate, 4 doctoral students, 3 scientists.

The scientific objective of the project is synthesis and study of the physical properties of the low molecular weight compounds which form an amorphous glass films from a solution. To achieve the objective, low molecular weight organic glasses will be synthesized and their nonlinear optical, light emitting, holographic recording properties will be studied and their quantum chemical calculations will be performed. This is an interdisciplinary project in the fields of physics, chemistry and material science.

The project will be implemented for 23 months from October 1, 2013 till August 31, 2015 at Ķengaraga Street 8, Riga.

The cost of the project 497 990.91 EUR, of which 448 836.38 EUR from European Social Fund, 48 154.25 EUR from the State’s budget and 1000.28 EUR the co-financing of the Institute.
