Green light for perovskite-based wearables
EU H2020-funded project PeroCUBE aims at developing flexible, lightweight perovskite-based electronics, creating new commercial opportunities for the lighting, energy and telecom industries.
The mineral perovskite, already used in PV technologies, has a strong potential to dominate the OLAE (Organic and Large Area Electronics) market by providing advanced lighting solutions (PE-LED). The project represents a further progress for CSEM, which in addition to the existing PV activity, will work on perovskite light transmitters for the first time.
PeroCUBE has two main objectives: producing efficient, simple and low-cost light sources closer to natural light sources and supporting the development of more stable and low-cost solar panels. By combining these promising technologies, PeroCUBE seeks to develop a new generation of Visual Light Communication (VLC) and LiFi (light fidelity) standard, widening the scope for human centric lighting (HCL), data transmission, wearables and IOT applications that do not cause harm to humans nor the environment.
