Development of smart machines, tools and processes for the precision synthesis of nanomaterials with tailored properties for Organic Electronics (Smartonics)
(01 Jan 2013 – 31 Dec 2016)
Organic Electronics is a rapidly emerging field that is expected to revolutionize conventional electronics, energy and photonic applications. Some of the most important OE applications include OPVs, e-paper, OLEDs for displays and lighting, sensors, TFBs and RFIDs.
The targets of the SMARTONICS Project were the following:
- Development of smart Nanomaterials for Organic Electronics (polymer and small molecule films, plasmonic nanoparticles and super-barriers) by process and computational modelling optimization
- Development of smart Technologies (R2R printing and Organic Vapour Phase Deposition machines combined with precision sensing and laser tools and processes)
- Integration of smart Nanomaterials and Technologies in Pilot lines for precision synthesis of nanomaterials and Organic Electronics devices, optimization, demonstration and evaluation for industrial applications
