NANOIDENT AG realizes the first high-resolution organic photonic sensor

NANOIDENT AG

Linz, Austria | July 05, 2005

NANOIDENT AG, the leader in organic photonic sensors, presents the world’s first high-resolution, organic semiconductor-based photonic sensor for high-volume industrial applications. The 256-pixel sensor, with 50 x 50 ìm pixel size and 250 dpi resolution, sets the new global benchmark for organic photonic sensors. The product represents a new class of sensors, with unique technical features and extremely low production costs set to revolutionize the marketplace. Flexible, ultra-thin and largearea organic photonic sensors promise to open up entirely new market segments as well as succeeding in existing markets for silicon-based sensors.

Benefits of NANOIDENT organic photonic sensors
NANOIDENT organic photonic sensors consist of flexible PET foil with ultra-thin layers of micro-structured electrodes and photoactive semiconductors. “Organic semiconductors can be processed in liquid form like printing ink. The use of innovative printing processes drastically reduces production time and costs” says NANOIDENT CTO Franz Padinger.

At the forefront of the technology
Creating the first high-resolution organic photonic sensor highlights the position of NANO-IDENT at the forefront of nanotechnological development. “Getting here took years of scientific and industrial experience in fields as diverse as organic photo physics, coating technologies, micro-structuring, organic semiconductor printing technology and sensor design” says Padinger. NANOIDENT is partnering with world-leading companies and research centers in the area of organic semiconductor technology, to participate in the latest developments at the cutting edge of nanomaterial research.
