Project Nr.  KC-PI-2020/26

Project  duration: 1.04.2020.-30.09.2020.

Project scientific leader: Dr.phys. Jānis Teteris

Project implementor: Institute of Solid State Physics, University of Latvia

On May 25, 2017, an agreement No. KC-L-2017/17 was signed between the Latvian Investment and Development Agency and the Institute of Solid State Physics, University of Latvia on receiving support Cabinet Regulation No. 692 of 25 October 2016 “Operational Program“ Growth and Employment ”1.2.1. Specific support objective “Increase private sector investment in R&D” Regulations for the Implementation of the Measure “Support for the Improvement of the Technology Transfer System” within the framework of the Fund for Commercialization and Patenting of Research Results of Public Research Organizations.

On March 31, 2020, within the third project selection round, the Latvian Investment and Development Agency approved the project application “Development of holographic recording materials based on azo-benzene and epoxy compounds” of the Institute of Solid State Physics of the University of Latvia, identification number KC-PI-2020/26.


The purpose of the project is the study of photoinduced mass transfer processes in thin films of amorphous chalcogenide and azo-benzene organic compounds and to develop a new type of photo-resists for holographic recording that do not require chemical treatment after exposure to light.

The maximum support funding for the technical and economic feasibility study of the project and the development of the commercialization strategy is up to 25,000.00 euros, including the European Regional Development Fund funding of 25,000.00 euros.
