IDTechEx Printed Electronics Europe 2019 Award Winners
At the 15th IDTechEx Printed Electronics Europe conference and exhibition in Berlin on April 10-11, four companies were honoured for their great achievements in developing and commercialising printed electronics technologies.
QD display updates from SID 2018: quantum dots
In this article we provide a detailed review of the latest progress in quantum dot (QD) technology reported at the SID conference in California, USA.
Smart printing: power generating films and luminescent glass
New inks for inkjet printers make it possible to print organic displays or solar cells on film and glass for the use in architecture, the textile industry and many other industries.
Automatically darkening windows in a wide range of colors
Electrochromic glass darkens automatically when the sun shines and keeps the heat out. Previously it was available only in blue, and switching times were also long. Now, a new process makes it possible to manufacture other glass colors for the first time.
Brilliant colors from environmentally friendly crystals
Quantum dots have made it possible to substantially increase color quality in LCD displays. However, these cadmium-based nanocrystals have proven to be harmful to the environment. Researchers are working together with an industry partner to develop a promising alternative: quantum dots based on indium phosphide.
Organic lights and solar cells straight from the printer
Flickering façades, curved monitors, flashing clothing, fluorescent wallpaper, flexible solar cells - and all printable.
New pilot line for organic electronics
Organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) and organic solar cells can now be developed at Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP in Potsdam-Golm in a near-industrial scale. The new pilot line was designed and implemented by Fraunhofer IAP in cooperation with the plant manufacturer MBRAUN.
OE-A Unveils New Roadmap and Demonstrators
The updated and expanded third edition of the OE-A Roadmap for organic and printed electronics offers an overview of future product generations as well as requirements for materials and technologies.
OE-A Germany helps R&D activities and product plans
The second version of the Organic Electronics Association (OE-A) roadmap provides a forecast for the market entry of printed electronics through 2015 and beyond.
