Polynet: Network of Excellence for the Exploitation of Organic and Large Area Electronics

14.10.2008
The NoE PolyNet (Network of Excellence for the Exploitation of Organic and Large Area Electronics / OLAE) aims to establish Europe in the OLAE area as the world leader in science, technology development and subsequent commercial exploitation of printing and large area technologies for heterointegration of flexible electronics.

Future industrial Exploitation needs a research cooperation base and a service base to foster transfer from science to industry within EU. Therefore fragmentation of European research landscape has to be overcome.

The NoE PolyNet will support these aims with three core platforms: a research cooperation platform, a service platform and a knowledge platform.

Currently six research cooperation cluster are on the way which cover all competences of the NoE: laser ablation, thin film batteries, nanoimprint lithography, multifunctional materials, modeling of devices, two devices integration.

The goal of service platform is to establish an integrated service providing cost effective and easy access to qualified Organic and large area electronics
• design, modelling, simulation and
• engineering services,
• advanced manufacturing tools and methods,
• testing and characterisation of materials and devices
through one single customer interface. A sustainable business model will be developed for the continuation of the NoE. Main tasks of the knowledge platform are the creation of a European Observatory for Organic Electronics (EOOE) and by defining educational standards and coordinating the different existing educational programs and defining new ones if appropriate. The Mission of the EOOE is to perform a continuous scientific and technological watch in Organic and Large Area Electronics for rising weak signals on scientific breakthroughs, main achievements & emerging trends.

For a long-term integration of European research landscape PolyNet will develop concepts for the continuation of research cooperation and service offers, validate and put them into operation. Impact is expected not only on the research landscape of Organic and Large Area Electronics but also indirectly on European industry by long-term stimulation of innovative technologies and new companies.

Im Focus: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
