Graphene based flexible and recyclable light sources for life science applications

Reference number
Coordinator LUNALEC AB
Funding from Vinnova SEK 300 000
Project duration May 2017 - October 2017
Status Completed
Venture Strategic innovation program SIO Grafen

Purpose and goal

The goal of the project was to develop necessary preparations and preliminary data as well as a project team to carry out a large R & D project with graphene as an important component. The project succeeded with the project parts’ preparations, but failed to get external partners to secure internal financial support for their part of project funding. LunaLEC and Nano for Energy will therefore not apply for a SIO Grafen R & D project this autumn, but continue on their own with continued development.

Expected results and effects

Businesswise, the project succeeded in defining a number of applications where recycling and sustainability is important to customers. Technology wise, a number of approaches were tested to use graphene as a cathode, which makes future development more focused. Nano for Energy and LunaLEC will continue to develop products based on the results of the project.

Planned approach and implementation

The project developed different graphene electrodes which can be utilized in light-emitting electrochemical cells for both life science applications and other large area applications where the aspects of sustainability are of high importance. The project also developed a project team from LunaLEC, Umeå University and Nano for Energy which would have been able to support a large R&D-project for continued product development.
