Advanced nanotechnology opens up new markets
NANOIDENT AG realizes the first high-resolution organic photonic sensor
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.

Breakthrough in sensor technology
Organic photonic sensors represent a breakthrough in the commercialization of
nanotechnology-based semiconductors. “This market promises incredibly dynamic
growth, reminiscent of the arrival of silicon semiconductors 40 years ago” says NANOIDENT’s
CEO Klaus G. Schroeter. And NANOIDENT is leading the way, with the world’s first
nanotechnology-based organic sensor solutions for high-volume applications such as
flexible fingerprint sensors for smart cards and large biochip 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.
