Development and integration of processes and technologies for the production of Organic Low-cost and large-Area flexible Electronics (OLAtronics)
Date du début: 1 janv. 2008, Date de fin: 31 mars 2011 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

During the last years, there has been a rapidly expanding effort for the development of the materials and processes for the manufacturing of electronic devices based on organic thin film materials. The wide implementation of active (organic semiconductors) and passive (barrier, electrode) materials for the manufacturing of Flexible Organic Electronic Devices (such as flexible Electrochromic-EC and Photovoltaic-OPV devices) will be defined on the ability to synthesize, prepare and encapsulate these devices using low-cost and large-scale roll-to-roll (R2R) technologies.The objectives of the OLAtronics Project are:a) The development and optimization of production processes for active and passive materials by establishing an effective combination of vacuum, wet, and printing methods to provide materials with advanced properties, performance, stability and lifetime, together with low-cost and large-area processing,b) Effective encapsulation of the developed active and passive materials into components, and their large-scale fabrication onto flexible R2R substrates combined to real-time monitoring and control of materials process and quality by in-line optical techniques,c) Integration of the developed manufacturing technologies into a pilot-scale to allow the low-cost and large-area manufacturing of prototype device demonstrators, ultimately in large scale.The OLAtronics objectives are consistent with the topics addressed in "ICT-2007.3.2: Organic and large-area electronics visualisation and display systems". The project is targeting the development of large-area and low-cost manufacturing technologies (like printing) and encapsulation of active and passive materials towards high added-value material components and products that will put a major thrust towards the reinforcement of the European Industry's competitiveness in organic and large-area electronics.For more information on the OLAtronics project you may visit the following website:
