Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation
The 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 consortium brings together 14 industrial and academic partners from 10 European countries. The project will merge 3 different technologies.
This innovative collaboration, which engages the industry, academia and research organizations, represents the whole value chain and breeding ground needed to develop a new generation of sustainable perovskite-based devices that combine Lighting, energy harvesting and light communication. Already seen as a promising game-changer for the energy sector, this European consortium will allow the demonstration of the technology’s viability as a commercial product. The project will last 42 months for a total requested EU contribution of EUR 5.6M. The organic-inorganic metal halide 3D and lower dimensional semiconductors (usually referred to these days as perovskite), already used in PV technologies, have a strong potential to dominate the OLAE (Organic and Large Area Electronics) market by providing advanced lighting solutions (PE-LED). 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 sustainable, efficient and low-cost solar panels. By combining these promising technologies, the consortium 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.
Eulambia is responsible for the design and development of the opto-electronic sub-circuits necessary for the PeroCUBE VLC transceiver implementation as well as the implementation of advanced, bandwidth efficient modulation formats that will enable multi-Gigabit communication. EULAMBIA will collaborate closely with Aura Light Italy SRL, Vodafone and Optiva Media towards PeroCUBE transceiver integration and deliver operational prototypes for IoT and LiFi applications. In addition, EULAMBIA will offer its hardware infrastructure in order to develop a complete experimental testbed for the evaluation of the PeroCUBE transceiver performance. Finally, EULAMBIA will contribute to the dissemination and exploitation activities.
