Stronger, lighter, and more flexible AMOLED devices are made possible via thin film encapsulation (TFE). The ability to increase the lifespan of flexible OLEDs is a key feature of the Applied AKT TFE product line.
This is accomplished by providing multilayer solutions that combine diffusion barrier films with extremely low water and oxygen penetration with buffer layers to relieve stack film stress and cover unavoidable particles in upstream processes.
The tendency of OLED material to degrade when exposed to environmental elements is addressed by these high-performance films, which are deposition at low temperatures of 100°C.
Display makers may eliminate photolithography and etch process stages and cut manufacturing costs because to the systems’ unique vision alignment technology, which also guarantees precise and accurate mask positioning and deposition.
The Global Thin Film Encapsulation system market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
The availability of an R&D thin film encapsulation system for 200200 mm OLED substrates has been introduced by Beneq, a leading supplier of thin film coating equipment. The first system will be provided to the German-based Fraunhofer COMEDD as part of an atomic layer deposition (ALD) project.
The Fraunhofer Research organisation for Organics, Materials, and Electronic Devices, or COMEDD, an independent research organisation of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, was specifically involved in the design of this research platform.
Particularly for OLED lighting, organic solar cells, and OLED microdisplays, Fraunhofer COMEDD provides a wide range of research, development, and pilot production options.
In order to create this specific OLED thin film encapsulation technique, they are honoured to work with Fraunhofer COMEDD. A new benchmark in thin film encapsulation quality and flexibility has been set by this brand-new cluster integrated R&D system with face-down processing.
They’re eager to see new organic photovoltaic (OPV) and OLED designs from COMEDD that take advantage of ALD. Fast prototyping of new OLED designs is made possible by this capability.
It is crucial to note that the cross-flow reactor design permits process scale-up for wide areas and high throughput, which is suitable with industrial needs. A MBraun glove box can be incorporated with the R&D system for 200200 mm substrates, which is also available as a stand-alone system.
