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: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
