Printed Organic Photodetectors And Their Applications In Large-Area, Flexible Image Sensors
Estrel Convention Center, Berlin, Germany
Estrel Hall C
14:40 - 15:00
Together with its industrial partners, Holst Centre has developed flexible, large area photodetector-on-plastic technology. In this presentation we will give an update on this work and its applications in medical and biometric imagers. We present the first ever prototype of a curved X-ray photodetector on a plastic substrate. We will also demonstrate semi-transparent optical fingerprint/palmprint scanner of 6x8cm that can measure person's unique fingerprint ridge patterns and heartbeat at the same time.
Dr. Daniel Tordera is a Senior Researcher at Holst Centre working on organic photodetectors. He received his PhD in Nanotechnology at the University of Valencia studying organic electronic systems based on ionic materials for light emission. He was CEO of Lec-Val Lighting, a spin-off created to commercialize the results obtained during his PhD. He did a postdoctoral research stay at Linköping's University in the field of optics and plasmonics for energy and sensing applications.
Holst Centre/TNO (www.holstcentre.com), set up by the TNO and IMEC, is an independent shared-innovation R&D Centre for Flexible Electronics and Sensor Technologies in the Netherlands. A key feature is its partnership model with industry and academia comprising more than 40 international companies. Holst Centre/TNO has major activities in the areas of TOLAE, (hybrid) printed electronics, flexible OLEDs, photovoltaics and oxide transistor technology. Holst Centre has demonstrated solutions for numerous hybrid and printed electronics products, varying from printed temperature and humidity sensing devices, paper electronics, health-patches, smart garments, and (thermoformed) stretchable products
