This technology is based on the design of molecular, organic pigments, able to self-organize into non-conducting materials with reflective properties in the visible and near-infrared spectral range.
These excitonic organic mirror materials can be exploited for either aesthetic or technical applications.
They constitute a green and sustainable alternative to conventional metal-based mirror materials.
- Glass or metal decoration with lustrous coatings (prestige or masstige products)
- Window glass decoration with dichroic / duochrome aspect
- Plastics decoration with lustrous coatings (LED lamp reflectors, automotive headlight reflectors, automotive accessories, sanitary, …)
- Manufacture of lightweight and cheap mirrors (conversion of solar and photoelectric solar energy)
- Manufacture of very large mirrors (telescopes, LIDAR, …)
- Manufacture of tiny layers for photonic circuits
- Green alternative solution
- No metal / no electronic conductivity / lightweight
- Low production cost
- Ease of implementation on several substrates
- Compatibility with existing industrial coating processes
- Tunability of optical characteristics
