In November 2012, the TREASORES project (Transparent Electrodes for Large Area Large Scale Production of Organic Optoelectronic Devices) started with the aim of developing technologies to dramatically reduce the production costs of organic electronic devices such as solar cells and LED lighting panels. Funded with €9M from the European Commission and an additional €6M from the project partners, the project has since then produced seven patent applications, a dozen peer-reviewed publications and provided inputs to international standards organisations.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP, which is based in Dresden, Germany, has teamed up with the Itzehoe-based Fraunhofer Institute for Silicon Technology ISIT. The result of the cooperation is the successful development of flexible electrochemical biosensors on metallized film substrates.
The German-based Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology (FEP) has developed a coating, which is required to expand the diameter of a laser beam by more than a factor of one hundred. With this coating, backlighting for holographic displays can be realised in the future. The main aim of the project is to provide an approach for 3D television sets that work without annoying 3D glasses. Holographic displays would be a giant step in this direction. Moreover, medical scientists could inspect spatial images of the inside of the body and observe detailed movements of organs.
