Materials, manufacturing processes and devices for organic and large area electronics

Specific Challenge: Europe is a leader in the development of materials for organic and large area electronics (OLAE) but the materials still need to be improved to maintain this position. In addition, there have been attempts to combine dissimilar manufacturing technologies in order to achieve seamless integration of the new technology into traditional products at Read more about Materials, manufacturing processes and devices for organic and large area electronics[…]

Lightweight, compact VR glasses made possible by large-area microdisplays

VR glasses are increasingly popular, but they have usually been heavy and oversized – until now. Large-area microdisplays are expected to change that, because they make it possible to produce ergonomic and lightweight VR glasses. The new OLED displays now reach very high frame rates and achieve extremely high resolutions with “extended full HD”. The Read more about Lightweight, compact VR glasses made possible by large-area microdisplays[…]
