New flexible OLED prototype
cynora, a company focused on researching innovative organic semiconductors based in Germany, recently unveiled a new flexible OLED prototype that is said to open new possibilities for the packaging and lighting industry.
“Further enhancement will in the near future enable the manufacturing of, for instance, beverage cans, smart packaging or posters that feature light-emitting film components,” says Dr. Thomas Baumann, CEO of cynora. The major part of cynora’s prototype is made from a liquid solution. This type of manufacturing according to the company is particularly suitable for mass production because it enables substrates to be coated with thin light-emitting elements quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively using printing processes.
The prototype was developed as part of the cyFlex project. It won the 2012 SME Award of the Forum Organic Electronics Excellence Cluster initiated by InnovationLab GmbH in Heidelberg, Germany.
