Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) are developing rapidly and are increasingly becoming the focus of industrial product development, particularly popular as OLED displays. However, OLED technology is also suitable for use in lighting and signage systems - as the only true flat light source on glass or even flexible films. First OLED lighting elements have now been presented by various companies.

This one-day hands-on training course provides an introduction to the technology of organic light-emitting diodes. The focus is on manufacturing processes, applications and products. The participants will be able to identify opportunities of the new technology and to specify possible technology and to specify possible products.

The course will focus on three technology demonstrators; 1) OLED Design Sample Kit; 2) OLED Automotive Demonstrator; 3) OLED/OPD sensor for plasmonic-based detection of contaminants in milk. Course attendees will learn how these devices are designed, fabricated and tested. They will also learn how early-stage prototypes can be scaled to volume manufacturing.

  • Understanding of key features of OLED for lighting and signage applications
  • See the fabrication processes to produce OLED signage prototypes (hands-on activity)
  • See and evaluate working OLED devices by electro-optical characterization (hands-on activity)
  • Understand the OLED product design process and manufacturing ecosystem
