Institute of Solid State Physics, University of Latvia

Photonics at ISSP UL:

Development and investigation of photonic materialsand prototyping of photonic devices are among of most important research topics of institute.

The material classes are:

  • Wide-gap materials with different degree of ordering;
  • Inorganic single crystals, ceramics, glasses, thin films, and nano-structured surfaces;
  • Functional organic molecules and polymers;
  • Multifunctional and hybrid materials.

Target applications for these materials:

  • Light emitting diodes;
  • Photovoltaic elements;
  • Optical coatings;
  • Holographic recording and data storage;
  • Optical data transmission;
  • Photonic sensors.
