The market for flexible and printed electronics is growing, and in many cases, these products came out of projects at the university level. In speaking with academic leaders, there are new projects coming out of colleges and universities that are showing potential.
“There are two very interesting projects worth mentioning here: OLED-3D and FIM-O,” said Prof. Klaus Meerholz, Department Chemie, Universität zu Köln, and the COPT.CENTRE. “Both resulted in the realization of impressive demonstrators (photo OLED-3D) that attracted a lot of attraction in industry and press. In OLED-3D, a new method to produce OLEDs on 3-dimensional substrates by very simple solution-processing was developed and demonstrated. With automotive being one of the most attractive application sector for such OLEDs, the projects consortium consisted of Audi, Automotive Lighting, Philips, Merck and the University of Cologne.
“FIM-O used Film-
