Access & Acceleration

Network for innovation and health
The Danish-German border region has a wealth of skills and resources to develop new innovative ideas, technologies and products in the health sector. Nowadays, traditional innovation processes do no longer automatically lead to success. The project Access & Acceleration strikes a new path and utilises the key success factor of innovations: a strong integration of technology users, companies and universities throughout all development stages.
Projektperiode:  04/2019 - 03/2022

Every year, tons of meat products are thrown away since food safety concerns lead to a substantial waste of safe-to-eat food, causing a large waste of resources. Currently, the expiration date for meat/fish is determined by poorly performed subjective sensory. In this project, we found a high sensitive and selective method for detection of cadaverine (marker for meat freashness) by using a cadaverine-specific binder, and the method is applied into integrated sensors in close collaboration with AmiNIC ApS

Nanoparticles make their way into a broad range of products and help to optimize everyday life, but the tiny particles can also end up taking their toll on our health. Within the project consortium CheckNano, supported by Interreg5a, we will test products for possible harmful particles and develop a rapid test for the identification of toxic nanoparticles for later application in industrial production processes.

IMPULSE-OPV - Integrated Molecular Plasmon Upconverter for Low-cost, Scalable, and Efficient Organic Photovoltaics

This VILLUM Experiment addresses the fundamental limitation on the solar cell efficiency by exploring a method for exploiting a great fraction of low-energy sunlight photons that are transmitted and lost in traditional solar cell designs. The possibility of conducting plasmon-enhanced molecular up-conversion of sunlight inside an organic solar cell will be investigated. We aim at redefining the theoretical maximum efficiency of organic photovoltaics (OPV) by frequency up-conversion and subsequent absorption of photons with energies below the absorption threshold of OPV. The method applies the quantum properties of the light absorbing molecules in converting two low-energy photons into a single high-energy photon. This novel approach could significantly increase the efficiency of OPV, making this low-cost lightweight technology an important contributor in the transition to renewable power sources.

Methodologies for Hyperspectral Thermal Imaging

Industrial PhD project in collaboration with Newtec Engineering A/S
Proktperiode: 08/2018 - 07/2021


In this project, novel reactively sputtered metal oxide films will be developed and integrated as contact layers in organic, hybrid and silicon photovoltaics for the first time. By utilizing composition- and microstructure-tuned metal oxides, high work function layers that are robust to standard PV production and operation treatments will be developed, resulting in PV modules with so far unseen performance and stability. The project partners are besides SDU (lead): UC Berkeley, LBNL Berkeley, IMEC, Aarhus University and Sorbonne University of Paris. DFF FTP research project 2.

SOLID ESS lighthouse: Hard materials in 3D 

The Danish lighthouse SOLID has the vision to carry out cutting-edge research in neutron and synchrotron-based 3D imaging of hard materials. The combination of the separately superior sources, ESS and MAX IV, allows mapping the internal structure of a material, its formation and its change at all relevant length and time scales. At NanoSYD we will study cooling systems for power electronic devices. In particular we aim at understanding fundamental issues of flow of two-phase liquids and nanofluids in microporous materials and microfluidics devices. Neutron imaging is ideal for visualising such a flow due to its high penetration and good contrast with liquids. Complementary measurements with high-resolution Helium ion microscopy at SDU will clarify the role of structure between pores and surfaces in relation to nucleation and phase separation.

Villum Experiment - NanoTrain: programable colloidal nanomachine

For years scientists have dreamt of nanomachines and nanorobots, which allows precise interactions with nanoscale objects. Various types of nanomachines has been invented and tested, however many of key bottlenecks remain. In the NanoTrain project we aim to develop a fully programmable nanomachine, with own efficient and directional propulsion system, which could take on board arbitrary cargoes and be easily controlled e.g. by external magnetic fields. Our concept based on sequential capillarity-assisted particle assembly approach (sCAPA) can open-up new possibilities for building nano-scale devices e.g. fully controlled shuttles devices for targeted delivery.
