Alignment of Polar Molecules in Charged Surface
Alignment of Polar Molecules in Charged Surface

Technology Marketing SummaryA design and method to produce new forms of photoluminescent (PL) matter (whose constituent materials need not be photoluminescent) to form materials useful in bio-imaging, energy storage, composite materials, etc. Non-luminescent particles can be transformed into PL materials with this methodology. DescriptionCommercial applications include biomarkers, energy conversion devices, batteries, security inks, and use in health monitoring materials. The technology can be used anywhere non-luminescent particle need to be transformed into photoluminescent particles. Benefits
  • Material independent design
  • Non-photoluminescent materials can be made into photoluminescent materials
Applications and Industries
  • Bio-Imaging/Bio-Markers
  • Solar Cells
  • Battery Technology
  • "Smart" Composites
  • Security Ink
