OLED project Rollex started: "Lighting from the Roll"

08.03.2007
Dresden research facilities and well-known industry partners work together to meet the special requirements of the general lighting market with new technologies and to make with that possible an energy-saving and economical alternative to electric light bulb or fluorescent tube in a medium term.

Using the roll-to-roll-concept, noticeable lower coating costs are expected in comparision to cluster or inline concepts used for display production. Furthermore the use of e.g. low-priced aluminum foils as substrate for the deposition of very efficient organic light-emitting diodes is planned as a further cost reducing step. Aim of the project is among other things the implementation of a pilot plant.

Among the Technical University Dresden with its Institut für Angewandte Photophysik (IAPP), the Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems (IPMS) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Electron Beam and Plasma Technology (FEP) count the company Novaled AG as OLED technology developers, the VON ARDENNE Anlagentechnik GmbH (VAAT) as a manufacturer of industrial coating plants, the LayTec GmbH as a specialist for a optical process measuring technique at coating plants as well as the department of Lighting of the Philips GmbH as a global market leader in the lighting sector to the project partners.

"Light sources based on organic electroluminiscent materials offer the potential to make a high light intensity possible at a low energy consumption on mechanically flexible substrates." said project head Prof. Dr. Karl Leo (IAPP) about the high expectations. "Due to the excellent experiences of our partners and by creation of a complete value chain from the plant engineers, over OLED technology developers up to the users we will be able to bring the outstanding competition position of the German OLED industry fundamentally forward. By the formation of the consortium and the technological approaches the exploitation of the projects results shall be made possible by a production of lighting solutions based on OLED in Germany.“.

Im Focus: Quantum optical sensor for the first time tested in space – with a laser system from Berlin

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.

According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
