  • The partners of the EU project FlexFunction2Sustain have committed themselves to create a network for innovative solutions for sustainable and smart products powered by nano-functionalized paper and plastic in order to support SMEs, start-ups and industries in the development and market launch of pioneering products. After the first two years, a number of promising results and prototypes have emerged and will be presented at the Conference for Industrial Technologies IndTech 2022 in Grenoble, France, June 27–29, 2022. Among them, a recently finalized highlight: the first working organic photovoltaic cell on recycled plastics.

  • In addition to an energy-saving design, microdisplays for wearables must also display information in a way that they are sufficiently bright under daylight conditions, at best in colored versions and recognizable with the naked eye. The OLED microdisplay family of the Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP has now been extended: Microdisplays in a new design for ultra-high brightness. The new versions will be presented for the first time at the SID Display Week, May 10 - 12, 2022, in San José, USA, booth 1320 (German Pavilion).

  • The development of resource-efficient manufacturing processes for next-generation battery anodes was the aim of the joint project „nextBatt“ funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF, funding reference: L1FHG42421). At the Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP, new material combinations and efficient production technologies have been realized for this purpose. The Institute will present recent results at SVC TechCon 2022, May 3 – 5 2022, in Long Beach/USA, at booth No. 436.

    Within the joint project LAOLA (funding code: 03INT509AF), which was funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and has now been completed, large-area lighting applications with organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) on flexible substrates should be developed. The project focused on ultra-thin glass, which offers advantages compared to plastic as a substrate due to its excellent barrier properties. At the Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP, the OLEDs were applied to the flexible glass using a roll-to-roll process. A surgical light designed using this process will be presented at LOPEC 2022, on March 23 and 24, 2022, in Munich, at the joint booth of the project coordinator Organic Electronics Saxony e.V. (OES), No. B0.308.

  • With robots to hygienic cleanliness?

    Dresden / December 16, 2021

    Since October 2020, twelve institutions of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft have been working on the development of new technologies that enable service robots to clean and disinfect public buildings and public transport in a targeted and resource-saving manner. Led by the Fraunhofer IPA, the partners in the "Mobile Disinfection" (MobDi) research project, which has now been successfully completed, joined forces within the "Fraunhofer vs. Corona" program to contribute to a "New Normal" in the lasting pandemic. The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP examined how effective these robots disinfect.

  • Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP have succeeded in realizing a multicolor OLED microdisplay that consumes the lowest power of all available microdisplays with an extended range of applications compared to monochrome displays. This OLED microdisplay was realized within the "Backplane" project funded by the Saxon State Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labour and Transport (SMWA, funding reference: 100392259). It will be presented at CES, January 05 – 08, 2022, in Las Vegas/USA, at the joint booth of the Organic Electronics Association (OE-A), No. 51139, at the Venetian Expo Center.

  • Within the project "Backplane", funded by the Saxon State Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labour and Transport (SMWA, grant number: 100392259), scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP have succeeded in presenting a multicolor OLED microdisplay that consumes the least power compared to all available microdisplays. The new all-rounder can be seen for the first time in the exhibition at the 4th OptecNet Annual Conference, November 24  – 25, 2021, in Hannover, Germany.

  • In the EU-funded project NanoQI (GA number: 862055), eight partners are working together to develop an industry-ready, real-time, in-line technology for the characterization of nanomaterials. NanoQI will be the first consortium to optimize and multimodally combine X-ray diffraction analysis (XRD) and X-ray reflectometry (XRR) with novel hyperspectral imaging (HSI) technology to provide industry access to real-time assessment of nano-dimensions, structure and morphology of thin film nanomaterials, as well as correlative imaging of their homogeneity and defects.

  • Fifty-five percent of the final energy consumption in Germany are expended for heating and air conditioning. In order to reach climate neutrality by 2050, it is essential to avoid the use of fossil fuels for heating and instead rely on the number one energy supplier: the sun. In the domains of photovoltaics and solar thermal energy collection thin film systems contribute to the effective use of a broad spectrum of solar radiation, both for electricity generation and for heating. Vacuum technologies developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP are used to deposit layers and layer systems serving the exploitation of solar energy and the storage of heat on an industrial scale, contributing to the increased use of this important energy source.
