Luminous Materials and Devices

LMD group

The research group of Prof. Konstantinos Daskalakis utilizes materials science, solid-state physics, and photonics for improving light-emitting devices and engineering novel materials for lighting applications. We focus on materials and technologies that are inexpensive and environmentally friendly.

Our research covers a broad range of light-emitting device technologies and sub-fields that are scientifically diverse. We use novel bottom-up fabrication techniques and ultrafast spectroscopic and electrical measurements. The devices we can fabricate range from conventional light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and diode lasers to more exotic polariton and plasmonic devices.



ERC starting grant (2020–2025)

In the PLAS-OLED project we utilize polaritonics for developing novel organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) for lighting applications.

Turku-R2B-Bragg WOLED

Business Finland R2B project (2021–2024)

In the Bragg-WOLED project we introduce a novel approach for converting monochromatic OLEDs to white OLEDs while maintaining the high efficiency of monochromatic OLEDs.
