A composite material graphene oxide (GO)- silicophosphate (SP) as bulk/films and GO/rGO (reduced GO) films, prepared by sol-gel, will be investigated in the project. These materials have the role to lower their optical transmittance when incident laser beam intensities are increasing above a threshold value, ensuring a constant intensity of the transmitted laser beam and preventing thus the damages to human eye and different optical sensors. Z-scan investigations will explore the nonlinear optical properties and optical limiting performances of these materials all along with the technological chain and will allow the selection of the best performing material to be used in the final prototype device. The project involves complementary competence from four partners from Romania and Norway, 2 research institutes and 2 SMEs.
