Fraunhofer FEP

HQ Country
The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP ( is located in Dresden/Germany and focuses on developing innovative solutions, technologies and processes for surface modification and organic electronics. Along with strong experience in electron beam and plasma technology Fraunhofer FEP is the leading independent applied R&D service provider which combines organic electronics technology with silicon CMOS integrated circuitry (IC) design and process integration. Its aim is to transfer the results of R&D in the field of combined silicon-organic micro-electronic devices towards production by focusing on specific process development, components, system integration and applications based on OLED-on-Silicon technology. Therefore we are continuously seeking partners to further develop and commercialize recent achievements and topics, such as unique OLED microdisplay architectures, large-area OLED microdisplays for VR, ultra-low power/low-latency and 'bi-directional' micro-displays combining image display with embedded image sensing for AR, or micro-patterning for improved power efficiency and color of RGB OLED displays. Beyond that the technology and design expertise also becomes applied to opto-electronic sensor solutions making use of silicon-CMOS-based and/or organic photodetectors (OPD) and embedded illumination for interactive optical fingerprint or surface topology imaging sensors, single-chip reflection light barriers, optical sensors requiring embedded illumination (such as slope, stray light, wave front sensors), lab-on-chip modules with embedded microfluidics, or bio- and environmental monitoring.

Hybrid OLED creates innovative and functional luminous surfaces

Up to now, OLEDs have been used exclusively as a novel lighting technology for use in luminaires and lamps. However, flexible organic technology can offer much more: as an active lighting surface, it can be combined with a wide variety of materials, not just to modify but to revolutionize the functionality and design of countless existing products.

Lightweight, compact VR glasses made with large-area microdisplays

VR glasses are increasingly popular, but they have usually been heavy and oversized - until now. Large-area microdisplays are expected to change that, because they make it possible to produce ergonomic and lightweight VR glasses. The new OLED displays now reach very high frame rates and achieve extremely high resolutions with "extended full HD".

High-performance OLED microdisplays for next-generation smart glasses

A consistent trend across the tech sector is the one-upmanship of increasingly high screen resolution and larger display size. Yet, the fact that the former increases faster than the latter means that manufacturers must achieve ever-higher pixel density. Large OLED microdisplays developed under the LOMID project could help solve that problem, thereby providing Europe with a competitive edge.
