Solmates is happy to expand the growing PLD community by starting a collaboration with the University of Valencia on the development of Transparent Conducting Oxide’s (TCO’s) for novel organic electronic devices. The collaboration involves the investment of the university in a Solmates a panel PLD platform which will allow them to integrate the unique low damage deposition process of Solmates directly into their demanding applications. The PLD platform will be used by researchers from the group Molecular Science Institute (ICMol) which is chaired by Professor Henk Bolink.
Professor Henk Bolink recently received the Advanced Grant del European Research Council (ERC), which enables him to continue his research on amongst other things OLED devices and organic solar cell structures. Solmates’ patented deposition process for soft landing TCO’s enables the integration of highly quality transparent films with organic interfaces that are very prone to deposition damage. This combination is expected to increase the efficiency and performance of such devices paving the way for high efficiency solar cells and OLED’s.
