Green OLED

The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP works on innovative solutions in the fields of vacuum coating, surface treatment as well as organic semiconductors. The core competences electron beam technology, sputtering and plasma-activated deposition, high-rate PECVD as well as technologies for the organic electronics and IC/system design provide a basis for these activities. Thus, Fraunhofer FEP offers a wide range of possibilities for research, development and pilot production, especially for the processing, sterilization, structuring and refining of surfaces as well as OLED microdisplays, organic and inorganic sensors, optical filters and flexible OLED lighting. Our aim is to seize the innovation potential of the electron beam, plasma technology and organic electronics for new production processes and devices and to make it available for our customers. Our technologies and processes can be used for innovations in mechanical engineering, in transport, in biomedical engineering, in architecture and preservation, in packaging, in the field of energy and environment, on optics, sensors and electronics as well as in agriculture.

BMBF research project: Transparent organic photovoltaic glass facade (TOP)

As part of the funding initiative "Organic Electronics - Fundamentals of Technology and Application Scenarios" the BMBF-funded research project "Transparent Organic Photovoltaic (OPV) glass façade” ended in December 2018 (project name: TOP). The aim of the joint project was to develop semi-transparent solar films with a transparency of 15 – 30% at an efficiency of 8 – 10% and a suitable encapsulation. The consortium consisted of the CreaPhys GmbH (Dresden), the Fraunhofer FEP (Dresden), the Fraunhofer ISE (Freiburg), the Heliatek GmbH (Dresden) and the University of Ulm.

Full speed ahead for SmartEEs at Automotive Interiors Expo 2019

Flexible, organic and printed electronics conquer everyday life. The forecasts for growth promise increasing markets and opportunities for the industry. In Europe, top institutions and companies are engaged in research and further development of these technologies for tomorrow's markets and applications. However, access by SMEs is difficult. The European project SmartEEs - Smart Emerging Electronics Servicing works on the establishment of a European innovation network, which supports both the access to competences as well as the support of the enterprises with the assumption of innovations and the progress up to the commercialization.

Transparent and flexible - the new lightness of light

Ultra-thin, transparent and flexible - these are the attributes that distinguish the innovative OLED technology. Within the European research project PI-SCALE, with a total of 14 partners, the lighting experts of EMDE development of light act as so-called "launching customers", i.e. as pilot customers. Together with renowned companies such as AUDI AG, Pilkington and REHAU, the experts contribute their know-how to adapting a pilot line under the LYTEUS branding to the needs of the market and customers. The aim is to make the innovative OLED lighting technology available to companies of any size in order to launch products quickly and cost-effectively. As an example of new possibilities in lighting design, EMDE development of light GmbH is presenting for the first time a prototype for a light art object at LOPEC in Munich (19 to 21 March 2019), which demonstrates the aesthetics and immaterial appeal of the latest OLED technology.
