REALM coordinates IMPETUSS Project PID2021-128090OB, funded by Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation MICIN/AEI/10.13039/501100011033 and by ERDF A way of making Europe.

“Non-conventional solutions on luminescence-based high temperature thermometry for applications of industrial interest (IMPETUSS)” Project has been awarded for the period 01/09/2022 to 31/08/2025.

This project proposes new strategies for the design of contactless photoluminescence (PL) thermal probes spanning their operation range to temperatures well above 300 K. These probes will be based either on the PL of lanthanides (Ln) incorporated in inert refractory hosts or on that of carbon quantum dots (CQDs). In combination with remote reading techniques, the new developed thermal probes will enable the creation of bidimensional temperature maps, which may prevent device failures by allowing early detection of thermally aged areas.
