Lunavation AB is an IPR holding company started by researchers at Linköping University and Umeå University in Sweden to facilitate the commercialization of research results.


Light-emitting devices

Polymer light-emitting electrochemical cells, also known as LECs or LEECs, are a printable, inexpensive light-emitting device for displays and lighting applications.  Through basic research and theoretical and experimental analysis, we have dramatically improved the energy efficiency and lifetime of LECs, as well as demonstrated the unique physics and chemistry behind their operation.  We have also introduced new device concepts, such as the graphene- and polymer-based metal-free LEC.   

Microfluidic components

Low-voltage pumps and separation systems for use in lab-on-a-chip devices are being developed.  Our systems are designed for reliability, inexpensive manufacture, and simple operation.  For example, our on-chip pumps provide steady flow without moving parts or external pressure sources.


  • LunaLEC AB started The commercialization of light-emitting electrochemical cells (LECs) has progressed to the point where we are ready to take in external investors, and have therefore spun-off LunaLEC AB.LunaLEC ...
