Project: Transparent Alumina for Energy Saving Light Sources
Host Institution: CEITEC, BUT BRNO
Country of Origin: Slovakia
TOPIC OF MY RESEARCH:
Topic of my research is preparation of the transparent alumina exhibiting light induced emission properties by wet shaping technique.
WHY I HAVE CHOSEN THE TOPIC:
I have chosen this topic due to my previous several years work on research of alumina, its preparation and optimization focused on increasing optical transparency. Adding a property of photoluminescence will increase the application potential of this material.
USE OF THE PROJECT RESULTS IN PRACTICE:
The results of the research can be used for production of new materials suitable for energy saving light sources and dosimeters, namely phosphorus for HB LED diodes or lasers.
I have applied for SoMoPro because it enables me to focus on the research in progress, which is very promising and interesting and on the workplace with top-class equipment for this research. I believe that the work and research environment will help me to develop my knowledge and experience and enable me to apply for further grants on the joint research.
