Accelerating the manufacturing of OLAE materials
Organic and large area-electronics (OLAE) technologies and components have experienced a remarkable increase in usage in recent years. From rollable handheld displays to organic photovoltaics, printed electronics offer a solution for devices that need to be thin, power-efficient, flexible and lightweight. However, the manufacturing processes for these devices are difficult to adapt to mass production. The EU-funded MADRAS project aims to boost it with the implementation of material-driven improvements. Specifically, it will establish a high-speed manufacturing methodology with the use of specially designed materials and in-mould hybrid printed electronics processes to produce OLAE devices that are more affordable, more durable and have longer lifetimes. In this context, MADRAS will develop and validate the solution through two demonstrators of new generation within a complete supply chain: - A photodetector for persons’ authentification, - A geotracking flexible tag for Industry 4.0 sector.
