Application

Selenium was a component in the Dulbecco′s Modified Eagle Medium, used for the cell culture of alpha mouse liver (AML)-12 hepatocyte cell line. Se was also employed in a water based synthesis of glutathione-capped cadmium selenide quantum dots (GSH-CdSe QDs). 3Se is used in the synthesis of CdSe, which is consequetively used to modulate the photoresponse of quantum dot solar cells by varying the size and shape of semiconductor nanostructures.

Lanthanide Ions as Photon Managers for Solar Cells

Spectral conversion for solar cells is an emerging concept in the field of photovoltaics, and it has the potential to increase significantly the efficiency of solar cells. Lanthanide ions are ideal candidates for spectral conversion, due to their high luminescence efficiencies and rich energy level structure that allows for great flexibility in the upconversion and downconversion of photons in a wide spectral region (NIR-VIS-UV).

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
