One dye fits all: new materials with multiple fluorescence modes for different applications

A team of researchers led by members of the ICN2 Nanostructured Functional Materials Group has developed a technology that allows creating photo- and thermo-responsive fluorescent materials starting from a unique dye, while adapting the matrix in which it is dispersed. This approach simplifies the applicability of fluorescence switching materials, in particular in anticounterfeiting and optical sensing technologies.

New spin-off companies created with the support of the R+D+I Energy for Society Network

The R+D+I Energy for Society Network (XRE4S) provides consultancy and mentoring in industrial strategy, property protection, and market positioning to researchers who are interested in transferring their technologies to an existing company or founding a new one. Five spin-offs have been recently created with the support of XRE4S and one more (from the ICN2) may be established soon.
