Solid-state lighting systems

Activity of the research group:

Multi-domain (combined electrical, optical and thermal) measurement, modelling and simulation of LED luminaires, OLED devices, CoB LEDs, including LED ageing studies. Research for Lighting 4.0.

Recent results:

Together with members of the Delphi4LED consortium led by Signify, we have developed an Industry 4.0-like workflow for the fully computerised design of LED luminaires, essentially eliminating the need for physical prototyping of luminaires. The workflow is based on multi-domain digital twins of LEDs and LED modules, which are used to create virtual prototypes of LED luminaires for a given application scenario. Using these, computer simulations can be used to define the key operating parameters, eliminating the need for physical prototyping of the luminaires.

Nanotechnology, sensors

Activity of the research group:

Traditionally the main focus of the research group is on the research and development of electrochemical and optical biosensors and microfluidic systems. In the past few years, this is shifted towards optical, mainly plasmonic biosensors, that require the development of nanomaterial (nanocomposite) based sensor elements. Concerning sample handling, the focus is on polymer-based microfluidic systems.

Recent results:

In the framework of an international collaboration with CEITEC, Brno, we developed a novel gold nanoparticle – epoxy surface nanocomposite, that was successfully applied as a localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) sensor element as a label-free nucleotide sensors. The nanocomposite was also tested as a SERS substrate (in collaboration with Wigner FK, Hungary). In one of the ongoing projects, it is currently applied for COVID-RNA detection with Raman-spectroscopy.

Microelectronics reliability and failure analysis

Activity of the research group:

The research group deals with quality, reliability problems and physical failure mechanisms of electronic products and components. The strengths of the research group are that its staff have a strong foundation in electronics manufacturing technology, requiring interdisciplinary knowledge, and that they are researching topics that will determine industrial interest in the long term. The results achieved by the research group are directly applicable to the practice of the electronics manufacturing industry.

Recent results:

Research into the reliability of electronic products is a constant focus for the manufacturing industry. The research group has made progress in understanding the failure mechanisms (e.g. electrochemical migration, whisker formation) that occur during the operation of products over the longer term, and in developing materials science methods for the analysis of products.
