New tools to streamline the manufacturing of flexible organic electronics
Organic and Large-Area Electronics (OLAE) allows electronic circuits and devices to be produced using relatively low-cost printing processes onto any surface and over large areas. It leads to the creation of a whole new generation of products, such as lightweight, conformable and rollable display screens, large-area efficient lighting and low-cost organic photovoltaic cells. The greatest overarching challenge is to print organic electronic nanostructures with high yield, reliability and quality at industry-level scale. The EU-funded RealNano project brings together Europe's excellent entities in characterisation/modelling and industrial entities with unique pilot lines in order to address the current challenges. It will develop rapid and real-time nanoscale multimodal, multiscale, non-destructive in-line nanocharacterisation tools and methodologies that will be integrated in Roll-to-Roll printing and gas transport pilot to production lines, to improve the quality and reliability of the manufacturing of Organic Photovoltaics and Organic Light Emitting Diodes.
