Development of smart machines, tools and processes.. (Smartonics)
Development of smart machines, tools and processes for the precision synthesis of nanomaterials with tailored properties for Organic Electronics
Start date: Jan 1, 2013,
End date: Dec 31, 2016
The target of the Smartonics project is the development of Pilot lines that will combine smart technologies with smart nanomaterials for the precision synthesis of Organic Electronic (OE) devices.The Smartonics objectives are:1.Development of smart Nanomaterials for OEs (polymer & small molecule films, plasmonic NPs and super-barriers) by process and computational modeling optimization.2.Development of smart Technologies (r2r printing and OVPD machines combined with precision sensing & laser tools and processes).3.Integration of Nanomaterials & Technologies in Pilot lines for precision synthesis of Nanomaterials & OE devices, optimization, demonstration and evaluation for Industrial applications.Smartonics will develop three Pilot lines: a) OVPD Pilot line equipped with in-line optical sensing tools, b) r2r printing Pilot line, which will combine optical sensing and laser processing tools, and c) s2s Pilot line for the precision fabrication of OE devices (e.g. OLEDs, sensors from state-of-the-art Nanomaterials) and for the evaluation of encapsulation of these devices. The above will be up-scaled in Industrial processes. More specifically:- The parameters for small molecule OPVs will be up-scaled to Industrial scale OVPD machine.- The process parameters for r2r OPVs will be up-scaled and demonstrated in r2r printing machines.- The advances and precision in the synthesis of nanomaterials by the optical sensing tool will be evaluated for flexible displays.- The advances for the r2r printing process will be evaluated for large-scale production of OPVs.- The flexible OPVs will be validated and implemented in automotives applications.All the above are consistent with the topic NMP.2012.1.4-1 since the the targets of project are including the development of Pilot lines that will be combined with production machines (gas (transport and printing), precision and fabrication tools and processes for the precision synthesis of Nanomaterials and OEs.
