The Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research (IAP) develops bio-based and synthetic polymers, from the laboratory to the industrial scale. Applications are diverse across many markets, such as bio-based packaging, lightweight materials, truck tires and more.
One of the applications being researched and developed at the Fraunhofer IAP is luminescent materials for displays. The IAP functional polymer systems division, looks into a broad range of materials, including light-emitting polymers and quantum dots. The focus lies in solution processing of these materials with a strong focus on printing methods.
