Leading role in the field of organic sensors
NANOIDENT AG is the world’s first company specializing in the development and production of opto-electronics sensors based on organic semiconductors. Market experts estimate that today’s market volume of photodetectors equals approximately $10 billion US. In the next ten years, the market volume will triple as the new organic sensors, with their unique material properties and cost advantages, will open up entirely new markets, such as in the industrial, life science and security fields. At the “Plastic Electronics Congress & Showcase” in Frankfurt/Main, on 4./5. October 2005, NANOIDENT has presented the first high-resolution organic semiconductor-based photodetector for high-volume applications, which is a significant milestone for the commercialization of organic semiconductors.

NANOIDENT’s photodetector sets new global standards with 256 pixels, 250 dpi resolution and 50 x 50 ěm pixel size. For the realization of the world’s first high-resolution organic semiconductor-based photodetector, NANOIDENT has been awarded with the Upper Austrian Innovation Award 2005.


NANOIDENT is the leading nanotechnology company in the area of organic photonic sensors. The company develops and produces photonic sensors based on organic semiconductors for market segments with high growth potential, such as security technology and life science technology. NANOIDENT has succeeded in winning the world’s leading scientists and experts in organic photo physics as shareholders, collaborators and consultants, building unique know-how concerning nanotechnology-based organic semiconductors and production processes. NANOIDENT’s integration in international networks of expertise of the global leading research centers ensures access to latest research results in the area of organic semiconductor technology. In the context of technology partnerships with innovative industrial firms NANOIDENT develops trendsetting sensor solutions for high-volume market segments.
