InnoPhysics has performed successful feasibility studies at the Holst Centre, and now is ready to go to market with its proprietary Digital-on-Demand PlasmaPrint hardware solution. They say that their technology enables software patterned surface functionalization, etching and deposition of functional coatings on thin (plastic) substrates.

The proprietary InnoPhysics technology solution operates on a large variety of plastic substrates in ambient conditions, at room temperature and it provides flexibility in patterning, i.e. mask-less. As part of the go-to-market strategy, InnoPhysics is developing a PlasmaPrint toolkit integratable with existing table-top R&D print platforms.

In a joint effort Holst Centre and InnoPhysics have shown the feasibility of surface tension contrast patterning and printing as a valuable technology for the production of energy efficient OLEDs. This successful concept validation has led to a collaboration between Holst Centre and InnoPhysics to further develop the surface tension contrast patterning and printing method and explore a number of new processes to create patterns of functional materials on flexible substrates using the InnoPhysics technology.
