Thin-film optoelectronics for sensors and surveillance

Project Details


Optoelectronic components play a key role in multiple sensor, monitoring and surveillance applications ranging from security cameras and gas sensors to automotive sensors and first person view controlled or autonomous vehicles. This project aims at demonstrating and developing new semiconductor based sensing solutions and more efficient infrared lighting methods to enable new and improved sensor, surveillance and monitoring systems. The expected advances are based on combining state-of-the-art compound semiconductor material growth abilities with the novel diffusion driven charge transport (DDCT) mechanisms we have recently demonstrated. This will provide the possibility to develop light emitters and sensors with a fundamentally different operating principle than used in present technologies, constituting new openings with substantial societal, scientific and technological potential.
