A Spanish public research organisation has developed a device in far-field emission, based on polymer micro-spheres arranged periodically over a gold layer deposited on a silica support. Those micro-spheres contain the emission sources inside,which can be an organic dye,a quantum dot or N-V centers (Nitrogen vacancy)in diamond. These devices can be used as light sources or LED`s as well as chemical or electrical sensors depending on the substrate. Industrial Partners for license agr. are sought.
