Bringing heat into the bright side in bio-hybrid LEDs – Heat-BLED

Project description

Phosphor materials that resist heat generation

Commercially available light-emitting diodes rely on phosphor materials doped with materials that are costly and in short supply. A new class of phosphor materials (organic) described as hybrid shows great promise as a more cost-effective and abundant alternative. The main goal of the EU-funded Heat-BLED project is to develop new hybrid phosphor materials that can withstand high photon flux excitations without generating heat or smartly leverage it in dual functional devices (which convert and store energy). Heat-BLED will provide experimental insight into the interaction of protein matrices with light and a profound experimental basis to determine the optimum composition of the matrix to reduce heat generation.
