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: Future electronic components to be printed like newspapers

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.

The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
