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: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
