Polymer light-emitting electrochemical cells (LECs) are drawing interest in the fields of display and lighting. LECs are printable, inexpensive light-emitting device which can be utilized for displays and lighting. Researchers at Linköping University and Umeå University in Sweden have conducted research and have improved the energy efficiency and lifetime of LECs, while also introducing new device concepts, such as the graphene- and polymer-based metal-free LEC.
These researchers have also been successfully developing technology for microfluidic components such as low-voltage pumps and separation systems for use in lab-on-a-chip devices. Lunavation AB, a holding company started by the researchers at Linköping University and Umea University, is commercializing these projects.
These two projects are clearly quite different, and Lunavation realized the need to start developing microfluidics and LEC-technology separately. As a result, LunaLEC and LunaMicro were formed
