A variety of designs for OLED lighting in one easy kit

21.02.2018

The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP, a provider of research and development services in the field of organic electronics, will be presenting an OLED Lighting Design Sample Kit for the first time at LOPEC 2018 in Munich, Hall B0, Booth No. 320, March 14-15, 2018.

Up to now, OLED lighting modules have mainly been the familiar white OLED tiles for general-purpose lighting. However, automobile designers are increasingly discovering OLED technology as design elements to make their automobile brand design recognizable and unmistakable. Flexible OLED modules can be incorporated as luminous design elements in many other new and innovative fields of application.

Flexible OLEDs present designers a practically unlimited tool for creating new OLED-based luminous objects. In order to convey some of the diverse opportunities that OLEDs offer to interested designers, Fraunhofer FEP is presenting its OLED Lighting Design Sample Kit at LOPEC 2018 for the first time, in order to demonstrate the unique properties and features of OLEDs, such as their flexibility, segmentation ability, transparency, their multicolored surfaces, hybrid colors, patterns, and variable color intensities.

Jan Hesse, project manager of Sheet-to-Sheet OLED Technologies at Fraunhofer FEP, explains the opportunities for collaboration as follows: “Fraunhofer FEP offers its customers realization of customer-specific OLED modules with a wide range of features and materials for converting design ideas into luminous visual displays using OLED technology. We utilize the latest technologies and materials, and apply our extensive know-how to produce prototypes and short production runs of our customers’ desired applications.”

Fraunhofer FEP works closely with well-known OLED manufacturers in scaling up to full serial production. Moreover, FEP also shows designers both the possibilities and what the application requirements are for a given OLED design through OLED-specific design workshops.

In addition to the aesthetic possibilities for designs using OLED technology, the OLED Design Sample Kit is also intended to illustrate the functional possibilities that OLED technology offers in medical engineering and analytics, such as integrating lighting (OLED) and sensor technology (OPD) on a single component for example, thus facilitating new applications.

The scientists and designers at the Fraunhofer FEP are looking forward to specific enquiries from industry regarding development of prototypes or short-run client-specific OLED modules for innovative designs and applications.

Im Focus: Atoms don't like jumping rope

Nanooptical traps are a promising building block for quantum technologies. Austrian and German scientists have now removed an important obstacle to their practical use. They were able to show that a special form of mechanical vibration heats trapped particles in a very short time and knocks them out of the trap.

By controlling individual atoms, quantum properties can be investigated and made usable for technological applications. For about ten years, physicists have...

Im Focus: Images from NJIT's big bear solar observatory peel away layers of a stellar mystery

An international team of scientists, including three researchers from New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), has shed new light on one of the central mysteries of solar physics: how energy from the Sun is transferred to the star's upper atmosphere, heating it to 1 million degrees Fahrenheit and higher in some regions, temperatures that are vastly hotter than the Sun's surface.

With new images from NJIT's Big Bear Solar Observatory (BBSO), the researchers have revealed in groundbreaking, granular detail what appears to be a likely...

Im Focus: New Pitt research finds carbon nanotubes show a love/hate relationship with water

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are valuable for a wide variety of applications. Made of graphene sheets rolled into tubes 10,000 times smaller than a human hair, CNTs have an exceptional strength-to-mass ratio and excellent thermal and electrical properties. These features make them ideal for a range of applications, including supercapacitors, interconnects, adhesives, particle trapping and structural color.

New research reveals even more potential for CNTs: as a coating, they can both repel and hold water in place, a useful property for applications like printing,...

Im Focus: Magnets for the second dimension

If you've ever tried to put several really strong, small cube magnets right next to each other on a magnetic board, you'll know that you just can't do it. What happens is that the magnets always arrange themselves in a column sticking out vertically from the magnetic board. Moreover, it's almost impossible to join several rows of these magnets together to form a flat surface. That's because magnets are dipolar. Equal poles repel each other, with the north pole of one magnet always attaching itself to the south pole of another and vice versa. This explains why they form a column with all the magnets aligned the same way.

Now, scientists at ETH Zurich have managed to create magnetic building blocks in the shape of cubes that - for the first time ever - can be joined together to...
