In March 2016 the EU launched a new project, called, PI-SCALE, that aims to create a European-wide pilot line which will enable companies of all sizes to quickly and cost effectively test and scale up their flexible OLED lighting concepts and turn them into market ready products.
As one of the core-founders in this project, the Fraunhofer FEP is soon set to present the first demonstrators of flexible OLED out from this project. The OLED prototype you see above was deposited using a roll-to-roll by Nippon Electric Glass, on an ultra-thin glass.
The Fraunhofer FEP can perform OLED deposition at either Roll-to-Roll (R2R) and Sheet-to-Sheet (S2S) processes. The roll-to-roll made OLEDs can be up to 15 meters long - with an efficiency of over 30 lm/W and nearly 100% yield. The OLEDs can be deposited on plastic or ultra-thin glass.
