Cavity-confined Luminophores for Advanced Photonic Materials: A Training Action for Young Researchers

Cavity-confined Luminophores for Advanced Photonic Materials: A Training Action for Young Researchers

Objective

"""FINELUMEN"" is a 4-year project aiming at the preparation and extensive characterization of luminescent materials in which suitably designed organic and inorganic luminophores are encapsulated within nano-containers (carbon nanotubes and coordination cages) in which they can preserve and even improve their emission output. The ultimate goal is to create a library of luminescent modules emitting throughout the VIS-NIR region for producing superior functional hybrid materials. The emission colour tunability is defined by the emitting guest, while the versatility in the final application is controlled via tailored chemical functionalisation of the host. The versatile properties of these materials will make them attractive in at least 3 applicative areas, i.e. bioimaging, optoelectronic devices and sensors. The participation of a giant company and a high-tech SME in the consortium ensures a quick patenting and industrial scale up of the most promising luminescent materials, strengthening Europe’s competitiveness in a field of huge growth potential in the next decade. The research endeavour inside “FINELUMEN” calls for a multidisciplinary team in which key groups, experts in many different fields of chemistry, physics and engineering tightly interact. For this reason training and exchange of young researchers represents the core of the“FINELUMEN” activity To both early-stage and experienced researchers, a multidisciplinary training in the realm of synthetic/supramolecular/physical chemistry, photosciences, and engineering as well as management, communication, and IPR is offered, preparing them for positions in academia, industry, and government labs. The local and network-wide training and transfer of knowledge activities are strengthened by 2 authoritative visiting scientists, enriched by 3 FINELUMEN international summer schools and conferences, and complemented via PhD programmes in co-tutoring among partners based in different countries."
