The Holst Centre purchased a Kurt J. Lesker Super Spectros thermal evaporator, which expands the centre's OLED sheet-to-sheet production facilities. The new tool will increase throughput for hybrid solution-processed / evaporated OLEDs, speeding up testing of new process steps and materials.

The Holst Centre says that in the future, high volume OLED production is likely to use roll-to-roll processes, but in sheet-to-sheet processes provide an an important intermediate step. The centre will use the new Super Spectros thermal evaporator for depositing the light-emitting and charge-transport layers of small-molecule OLED devices.
