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

s 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.

Smart2Go - Smart and Flexible Energy Supply Platform for Wearable Electronics

Just recently, the Mobile World Congress, the showcase for brand new electronics, came to an end in Barcelona and once again brought with it a wave of overwhelming innovations from the wearables sector. However, all new products require one thing - a powerful and reliable power supply. The recently launched Smart2Go project, funded by the EU as part of the Horizon 2020 programme, focuses precisely on this challenge - the development of an autonomous energy supply platform. At the Wearable Europe Show 2019 the Fraunhofer FEP as project coordinator will present the project and its competencies and objectives at booth no. P12, 10 - 11 April 2019 in Berlin, Germany.

    Up to now, OLEDs have been used exclusively as a novel lighting technology for use in luminaires and lamps. However, flexible organic technology can offer much more: as an active lighting surface, it can be combined with a wide variety of materials, not just to modify but to revolutionize the functionality and design of countless existing products. To exemplify this, the Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP together with the company EMDE development of light GmbH will be presenting hybrid flexible organic light-emitting diode (OLEDs) integrated into textile designs within the EU-funded project PI-SCALE for the first time at LOPEC (March 19-21, 2019 in Munich, Germany) as examples of some of the many possible applications.
