Novaled, cynora, Regensburg University Work on cyCESH Project to Develop Cost-Efficient Printed OLEDs

On June 1, 2013, BMBF launched the project cyCESH involving cynora GmbH, Novaled AG and the University of Regensburg with the group of Prof. Dr. Hartmut Yersin. The project is set to run for a duration of three years with a total funding of €6.1 million.

The research of new soluble materials for the inexpensive production of organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) and the production of OLED devices with high efficiency are the main focus of the project.

The new printable materials make it possible to manufacture OLEDs with simpler and cheaper printing processes. Currently, conventional OLEDs are still mainly being produced by expensive vacuum processes.

“Through our collaboration with Novaled and Prof. Yersin of the University of Regensburg, we combine, within a team of experts, a comprehensive and specific know-how and can take it to the next step in OLED development," said Dr. Thomas Baumann, managing director of cynora GmbH. "Our consortium strives for the overall goal of developing mass-market materials and methods for production of OLEDs.”

The collaboration of these project partners guarantees an optimum coverage of the value chain. Combined together, the areas of material development (Prof. Yersin), the subsequent synthesis, and optimization of the materials (cynora GmbH), as well as the application of solution-based-processed, doped transport layers (Novaled) form a complete comprehensive partnership for OLED applications.
