Project description:
PHODYE is a multidisciplinary project that aims to develop a new sensing technology based on the integration of dye thin films with photonic structures. The developed devices should yield a distinct optical response according to changes in the environment which can be easily measured by a chip or recognized directly by the human eye. The dye thin films will be prepared by a new plasma polymerization procedure that is fully compatible with the integrated optoelectronic technology. The dye molecules in the films react to changes in the concentration of certain gases and/or in temperature or UV radiation by a change of their absorption/fluorescence properties. A key feature of the project is to achieve an effective optical coupling between the photonic structures and the film fluorescence/absorption response, so that changes in this latter can be transformed into proportional photonic signals or visible colour shifts.
