Fluxim releases large area organic electronics simulation tool
Fluxim, a developer of dedicated R&D tools for organic electronics and a spin-off of the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW) in Switzerland, has recently announced the release of Laoss, the first simulation tool aimed specifically at the design of large area organic electronics devices such as OLEDs for displays and lighting as well as organic and perovskite solar cells.
One of the key advantages of organic electronics technology is the ability to create large and free- form devices. The Laoss software is used to design optimal electrode lay-outs of any shape with and without current carrying grids. A carefully designed electrode layout avoids non-uniformities that arise due to the resistance of the electrode and charge injecting layers.
With OLEDs gaining an ever bigger share of the display market and also PV and lighting applications gearing up for commercialisation, it has become more important to fine-tune every aspect of the device from the microscopic level to real-life sizes. The new Laoss tool can be used in combination with Fluxim’s Setfos software for the design of the layer stack of the OLED/PV device as well as with results from the Paios measurement platform.
