  • Topology specific security holograms

    The most prominent high security holographic anti-counterfeiting techniques include dot-matrix holograms and electron beam defined holograms. Both techniques require laser illumination, and the image can be viewed with a screen, CCD, or directly by the human eye.

  • Novel Optical Concentrator for BIPV Systems

    Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) solar concentrator systems not only generate electricity, but also allow the transformation of ambient light and the use of cogenerated heat for various fundtions. Commercial advantages of BIPV include substantial reduction in amount of silcon used and reduced...

  • Thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) compounds

    We have developed a series of deep blue TADF emitters for OLEDS. The emitters contain both carbazole donors and oxadiazole acceptors to effectively form excitons by a charge trapping mechanism.

  • New luminescent materials for lighting

    The best performing OLED devices are currently based on iridium and platinum emitters. Our new materials, based on luminescent ditopic Pd(0) complexes are the most emissive palladium complexes reported to date and with easily tuneable emmission energies provide a an ideal new family of OLEDs.

  • Supercell diffractive optics for thin film solar cells

    Light absorption in thin films can be strongly enhanced when guided modes supported by the thin films are excited. We present a novel design for diffraction gratings combined with a supercell which shifts energy from low to higher diffraction orders boosting solar cell efficiency.

  • Biimidazole based iridium complexes for blue light emission

    Printing plastic electronics from solution promises to revolutionise the manufacture of luminaires and the production of high-efficiency light sources. We have designed deep-blue emitting cationic iridium complexes that are unprecedently bright to complement currently available red and green emitter...

  • Direct Write System for Producing Metal Tracks on Plastics or Polymeric Films

    A team within Heriot-Watt University (Edinburgh, Scotland) has patent pending for a method of directly writing metallic tracks on polymer surfaces. Developed within Professor Marc Desmulliez research group, this fine line photo-catalytic deposition system is suitable for applications within microel...

  • Microbial Mop-up: method for microbial decontamination of building materials

    Researchers at the University of Dundee have developed a novel, highly efficient, environmentally-friendly method of decontaminating surfaces of radionuclides or metals, representing a significant advance for the nuclear and other industries.

    Expires: Created:
  • Multipurpose, Novel, Nanocomposite Coatings for Medical Devices

    Researchers at the University of Dundee have developed novel coating strategies to prevent medical device-related infections and complications.

    Expires: Created:
  • Low Carbon Emissions Cement

    Researchers at the University of Aberdeen have developed a cement with good mechanical properties, reduced energy use and lower emission of greenhouse gases by use of partially calcinated components. Rice husk ash has been used as additive but other pozzolans or latent hydraulic binders are expected...
