The Center for Organic Materials and Electronic Devices Dresden (COMEDD) was recently opened by the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. The center will focus on the development of processes for organic semiconductor devices such as organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) and organic solar cells.
“An industry for organic illumination will only be created when we in Europe not only provide development and design, but if we also manufacture. And only the most modern facilities will allow us to attain the necessary level of research and development. With COMEDD, we are expanding our leading position as cluster for Organics in Europe,” commented Professor Karl Leo, Director of Fraunhofer IPMS.
Believed to be the technology of the future for displays and illumination, OLEDs require no background lighting, provide an ideal picture from every viewing angle, good colour saturation, consume little energy and can function in large areas in ultra-thin layers.
