Lecture by Dr. Tobias Tomb, CEO cynora GmbH, on challenges and solutions on the way to the mass production of OLEDs. Use in displays of smartphones and other mobile electronic devices can already find Karlsruhe – organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). OLEDs emit homogeneous, flat light and are used as a pixel in efficient displays as well as flat in new lighting and packaging applications. But so far, especially extremely high costs prevent the mass production of OLEDs: the technical effort of the production as well as non-customized materials become more expensive the production enormously. By the same author: Jim Hackett. The challenges the OLED mass production and what possibilities there are for an efficient production, talks about Dr. Tobias Tomb, Managing Director of cynora GmbH, on the 17 April 2013 at the Conference printed electronics Europe in Berlin. Grave is in Berlin for interview requests or background conversations available both on April 17 and April 18, 2013.
Basis for low-cost mass production of OLEDs the Karlsruher cynora GmbH is among the leading companies in the field of the exploration and development of new organic semiconductor materials and lays the Foundation for efficient mass production of OLEDs with their work. The OLED technology on the basis of Iridium complexes and vacuum processing reaches its limits”, so grave to the current state of the production of OLED. cynora therefore relies on the liquid processing as a necessary supplement of today’s manufacturing processes.” This type of production is economically in material consumption as well as suitable potential for the creation of large-area OLED applications, which are still a problem for today’s technology. Against this background, the high-tech company of compounds, which are adapted to the liquid processing research. These materials are suitable for mass applications the currently used Iridium compounds in the efficiencies equal, but more easily available and therefore better. With its modular system, the cynora GmbH proves what in the future in the field of printed OLEDs, will be possible: the solubility as well as the colours of OLED phosphors can be set arbitrarily. This means that OLEDs can cover the entire spectrum of color in the future. In combination with new manufacturing processes, unforeseen applications therefore offer OLED producers.
Date: 17 April 2013 time: 17:45 topic: optoelectronics solutions for OLEDs speaker: Dr. Tobias Tomb, CEO cynora GmbH session/category: OLEDs live / new OLED material developments more information, visit the event page: events/presentations/optoelectronic-solutions-for-oleds-003712.asp about the cynora GmbH: the cynora GmbH was founded in 2003 and received a new management team in 2008. The company focuses on the exploration of novel organic semiconductors, which are used by their physical properties as emitting phosphors in organic light-emitting diodes. From the design of new function molecules for organic light-emitting diodes and solar cells on their production in the laboratory up to the tests on their physical fitness by measuring procedures cynora covers the entire spectrum of materials and component development. The company consists of a young, dynamic team of 17 staff working, inter alia, to improve the cost effective processing and lifespan of OLEDs as well as further increases in efficiency. Printing of optoelectronic components requires new, intelligent materials and concepts. Such components can be used as design objects, displays, packaging, light sources and power generation than solar panels.
