Evolution of surface and light
The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP is located in Dresden and focuses on developing innovative solutions, technologies and processes for surface modification and organic electronics.
Our core technologies are electron beam technology, sputtering technology, plasma-activated high-rate deposition, high-rate PECVD, and technologies for organic electronics and IC-/System design, which we use to develop solutions for various industrial tasks in surface treatment, vacuum coating and for organic semiconductors.
We offer a broad range of research, development and pilot manufacturing opportunities, especially for the treatment, structuring and finishing of surfaces as well as for OLED microdisplays, organic and inorganic sensors, optical filters and flexible OLED lighting. Our fields of work are subdivided into 7 business units based on the different materials and geometries being processed and due to special technological synergies.
The deposition of single layers and multilayer systems as well as the processing of surfaces are of huge practical importance across all industries. In addition, the development and integration of flexible organic electronics, OLED devices and OLED-on-silicon technologies offers a wide range of advantages and possibilities for novel applications such as wearables, data glasses, flexible lighting or microdisplays with sensor functions in environmental or medical solutions.
Whether in mechanical engineering, for use of solar energy in the field of smart building and architecture, in packaging industry, biomedical engineering, agriculture, preservation or in optics, sensor technology and electronics sector: We develop suitable processes and technologies as well as appropriate prototypes, devices and technological key components for our industrial customers as well as partners from research, scientific or public sectors from all over the world.
Feasibility studies, to evaluate surface coating or the integration of organic electronics in devices and pilot production, to facilitate the introduction of new customer products to the market, are also included in our range of services. The upscaling of technologies to industrial quantities and the integration into suitable plant technology and into existing production processes as well as the possibility of technology transfer and licensing are essential services of our institute. The cost efficiency of a technology for industrial production is always taken into account.
Together with companies, research institutions and public institutions we are working on novel, pioneering technologies within public funded projects of various funding authorities. By this we are continuously enhancing our comprehensive know how, which sets the basis to support our customers with their research and development projects from the first concept phase up to industrial realization.
