Plextronics has been awarded a $175,000 US DoE Phase 1 (Release 2) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) award for the design and development of low-cost processes of OLED lighting printed electrodes. Plextronics will partner with Electroninks (a startup that was spun-off from the University of Illinois to develop printable metal inks).

The new process will integrate Plextronics' conductive polymer inks (Plexcode HIL materials) with Electroninks printable metal inks. The printed metal lines will ensure high power efficiency and good light uniformity for large size OLED panels.
