Desired outcome

We are looking for technological solutions which can be applied to block specific ranges of light, Tunable from UV to NIR using structural color or photonic principles. The outcome should be a material which can be scaled up and functions at scale, ideally in a flexible or liquid environment. Classical pigments, small molecules and non-specific scattering are out of scope.

Details of the Innovation Need

As mentioned, the technology should be able to function in a flexible or ideally liquid environment. A maximum particle size under 50 microns would be ideal, this can of course include smaller particles inside if this is needed. Ideally, a section of the light spectrum between 100 and 200 nm could be reflected with a high transparency in the surrounding area. The final application would be in contact with humans, however as a first step to look at possible approaches this is not critical, but a route to compatibility should be in mind.


  • Compatible with oils, water (pH 5-9) and alcohol.
