Based on Hybrid Nanostructures,
Daniel Mandler (TL) & Shlomo
In this sub-project
we focus on forming new black absorbers for light harvesting by solar thermal
devices. The coatings are composed of ceramic materials and nanomaterials and
exhibit excellent absorption with very good thermal stability.
for Antibiofouling, Antirusting and Antimicrobial Coatings,
David Avnir (TL), Meital Reches,
Daniel Mandler, Oded Shoseyov & Uri Raviv
this sub-project we present new materials with antifouling and antibacterial
properties. The antifouling materials prevent the attachment of organisms to surfaces.
We are planning to develop the new material into a multi-functional green sprayable
coating, which can be used in hospitals and in the marine industry.
2. Printed devices:
Materials and inks for
electronic and optical devices printed on paper and plastics offering low cost
flexible products such as RFID tags, fluorescent signage, electrodes for
plastic solar cells and printed transistors.
A new technology for synthesis and sintering metallic and semiconductor NPs at low temperatures for electronic and opto-electronic applications
Shlomo Magdassi (TL), Uri Banin, Oded Millo & Danny Porath. In this sub-project we develop new processes for the sintering of nanoparticles and new metallic inks that are suitable for applications at low temperatures in printed electronics, which means that various heat sensitive optoelectronic devices can be fabricated, such as plastic displays, solar cells and touch screens.
semiconductor NC inks for signage and display applications
Uri Banin (TL) and Shlomo
In this sub-project we develop
new inks composed of nanocrystals that can provide unique optical
after printing. In particular, size dependent control over the fluorescent
color can be used to achieve new type of fluorescent inks for diverse
applications in lighting, displays, signage and more.

This project develops transparent conductors
composed of organic materials, for optoelectronic applications, and
new low cost flexible light sensors composed of printed
nanomaterials for use in devices such as plastic electroluminescent lighting,
remote touch screens and solar cells.
