Cytocompatibility studies of OLEDs have been carried out on cell cultures for the first time at the Fraunhofer FEP (Dresden, Germany) to test how well OLEDs are tolerated by cells. The results offer promising prospects for the use of OLEDs in the medical field, such as in light therapy.
The German Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology (FEP) will be presenting flexible organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) at AIMCAL 2016 in Dresden, Germany, from 30 May to 2 June. These OLEDs have been fabricated on ultra-thin glass and encapsulated with an ultra-thin glass foil in the same process.
In November 2012, the TREASORES project (Transparent Electrodes for Large Area Large Scale Production of Organic Optoelectronic Devices) started with the aim of developing technologies to dramatically reduce the production costs of organic electronic devices such as solar cells and LED lighting panels. Funded with €9M from the European Commission and an additional €6M from the project partners, the project has since then produced seven patent applications, a dozen peer-reviewed publications and provided inputs to international standards organisations.
