Development of X-ray sensitive hybrid organic-inorganic systems
Organisku-neorganisku hibrīdsistēmu izstrāde rentgenstarojuma detektēšanai


Project coordinator: Dr.phys. A.Kalinko
Total cost: 300 000 EUR
Duration (years): 2020-2022
Funding institution: Latvian Council of Science
Funding number: lzp-2019/1-0071
Acronym: FLPP-2019-1

Organic semiconductors have recently received increasing attention as promising alternatives to inorganic semiconductors. They are relatively inexpensive and easy to manufacture, can be flexible, operate at low voltage (<10V), and have a large surface area. In particular, organic-inorganic hybrid materials, which are the subject of the current project, have great potential for use in radiation detection, enabling unprecedented device architecture and functionality. The aim of the project is to develop and investigate organic-inorganic hybrid materials with potential applications for X-ray detection. The project is compliant with the Latvian Research Priority Area “1.Technologies, materials and system engineering for increased added value products and processes, and cybersecurity”. It also addresses main objectives of Research and Innovation Strategies for Smart Specialisation (RIS3) of Latvia in the area of smart materials, technology and engineering systems (thin layers and coatings).
