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.

Smart antibacterial surfaces using bidirectional display technology

The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP has been developing processes and equipment for cleaning, sterilization and surface modification for decades. Within the framework of an internal funding project, the Institute has been developing a novel approach for the automated detection and inactivation of biofilms. First results will be presented at parts2clean (October 22 – 24, 2019 in Stuttgart, booth no. C31, hall 9).

A leap forward in smart windows and glass façades for highly efficient energy management using novel switching technologies

In modern architecture, large-area glazing is a continuing trend because of its appearance and design variety. Large southwards-oriented windows help to reduce the energy demand for heating in winter. However, large-area glazing may significantly increase the energy demand for cooling and air-conditioning in hot summers. Smart Glass Solutions – such as electrochromic (EC) and thermochromic (TC) windows and glass façades – control the radiation energy transfer with the “touch of a button” and thus can drastically reduce the energy demands for heating and air conditioning of large buildings. In addition, they allow superior indoor lighting comfort in contrast to conventional mechanical window blinds. On October 1, 2019, the EU-funded initiative “Switch2Save” was launched to improve the availability and affordability of EC and TC smart glass technologies. The consortium of ten partners from research and industry will demonstrate the energy saving potential of smart glass solutions in two fully-operational buildings.

How an innovative multi-component procedure is opening up new options for extending the functional lives of biological heart valve prostheses

For decades now, the Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP has been developing processes and systems for cleaning, sterilization, and surface modification. The newly in-house developed process, called SULEEI, makes it possible to sterilize (S) and preserve decellularized pericardial tissue by means of photo-initiated ultraviolet (U) crosslinking with low-energy electron irradiation (LEEI). The complex procedure is under evaluation in cooperation with the department of cardiac surgery belonging to the heart center of the university hospital as part of the Technische Universität Dresden (TUD). The initial findings will be presented as part of the Future Hospital showcase, and at the Fraunhofer FEP stand, at the XPOMET Festival taking place in Berlin on October 10–12, 2019.
