Project progress information

Period 01.07.2022. - 30.09.2022. | 30.09.2022.

LU CFI developed electroluminescent elements from self-synthesized materials. 

The researchers of SIA "GroGlass" have created optical function models for two potential active media materials - ZnS nanoparticle layers and Ga2O3:Eu thin films. The creation of an accurate model of optical functions is necessary for conducting correct studies with the help of computer modeling in order to find out the optimal structure of clarified layers for electroluminescent protective panels


Period 01.04.2022. - 30.06.2022. | 30.06.2022.

ISSP UL scientists developed the first materials and created a device for electroluminescence measurements. The researchers of SIA "GroGlass" have prepared and delivered to CFI transparent conductive test samples for application and testing of electroluminescent materials. On June 7, the second meeting of Groglass and LU CFI scientists took place.


May 18, 2022

LU CFI researchers are working on the synthesis and formation of electroluminescent layer materials. Researchers of SIA "GroGlass" have carried out literature research with the aim of finding out the optimal method of creating a conductive, transparent film that would be compatible with SIA "GroGlass" technology. This picture is from the first joint project meeting of LU CFI and GroGlass, which took place on February 2 at GroGlas premises.
