The goal of this project is to create the inks for electroluminescent (EL) devices that can be embedded onto many surfaces. This concept was incubated as a result of the desire to embed identification patches on astronaut space suits, so that at a glance astronauts could identify other astronauts in their suits. This is particularly important in the Martian environment where dust storms are frequent. The technology will be applicable to in-situ construction of future planetary habitats. The current state of the art is deficient in regards to printing EL devices; namely, the reliance on a prepared surface coated with a transparent conductor and the inks used for the rest of the device (conductor inks, phosphor inks, and dielectric inks).
