Transferring lab-scale processes of organic electronics to large area roll-to-roll production requires the use of up-scalable deposition techniques. Furthermore, industrial production demands the omission of halogenated and other harmful solvents. Here we discuss the solution processing of organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) or organic photovoltaics (OPV) applying halogen free ink formulations that are compatible with large area inkjet printings. We demonstrate the inkjet printing of the emissive layer in smOLED devices and the photo-active layer in OPV. In both cases homogeneous layer thicknesses were obtained, yielding a uniform light emission from the printed smOLEd device. While in the case of the smOLED device the luminous output was slightly lower than that of a spin coated device, the photoactive layer printed for an OPV from the halogen free ink showed similar performance as a layer spin coated from chlorinated solvents.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
