EPIC/Photonics 21 Announces EU Support for Photonics PPP Pilot Lines

EPIC/Photonics 21 Announces EU Support for Photonics PPP Pilot Lines Three major Pilot Lines, which help SMEs take photonics technologies from lab into market, have been launched today by the Photonics Public Private Partnership (PPP). The Pilot Lines mean that thousands of high tech SMEs in Europe - who often lack access to advanced, cost-intensive infrastructures and expertise needed to manufacture new and innovative products – will be able to take their good ideas, scale-them up and validate them with the first customers for commercial production.

European "Flexibilis" Project to Develop Flexible Barrier to Replace ITO in OLED Applications

The pan-European collaborative project "Flexibilis" is providing the expertise to both develop and test the advances in large area OLED and OPV devices at pilot production scale Currently the commercialisation of Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) and Organic Photovoltaic (OPV) based applications such as flexible displays, lighting and energy harvesting devices is heavily dependent on the use of indium tin oxide (ITO) for transparent conducting films, and encapsulation films with high performance barrier properties. There is an industry need for the creation of alternative technologies and materials that have equal performance but deliver low cost, sustainable, transparent and flexible products for these applications. Throughout Europe, it is proving extremely difficult to develop the manufacture of these alternative materials beyond laboratory scale to the position where they are available in large area quantities at a price compatible with supporting market growth.
