Final Report - OMALANP (Tuning the properties of organic materials by the incorporation of nanoparticles produced by laser ablation)

Project ID: 226029
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE

Abstract

The OMALANP project proposed to use nanoparticles (NPs) produced by laser ablation of a target material in suitable solvents and monomers to tune the optical, electrical, mechanical and structural properties of organic polymers which are commonly used as active or barrier layers in flexible organic electronic devices.

The work carried out for the project had significant and important societal impacts. In particular the method of synthesising NPs by laser ablation avoids the use of toxic, pyrophoric and hazardous chemical precursors which are traditionally used for the synthesis of NPs by chemical methods.

This establishes the method as an environmentally friendly method thus making a significant contribution towards the adoption of a green technology for nanomaterials synthesis which is one of the most desirable objectives of any newly incoming technology.
