TWI and three other partners in the Horizon 2020-funded OLEDSOLAR project held a successful webinar on 30 June. The webinar, titled, ‘In-line Inspection of Optoelectronics Manufacturing,’ is now available to watch online.
The virtual event presented the latest developments in the in-line inspection of thin-film and organic photovoltaic circuitry.
The presenters included VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland’s senior scientist, Dr Marja Vilkman, Dr Wulf Grählert, Group Leader of the Optical Inspection Technology Group at the Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology (IWS), IRIS Research and Innovation Manager, Ioannis Kakogiannos, and from TWI, Senior Project Leader, Haitao Zheng.
The OLEDSOLAR project is concerned with innovative manufacturing processes and in-line inspection and monitoring techniques for the OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diodes), thin film and organic photovoltaic industries (CIGS (Copper indium gallium selenide) and OPV (Organic Photovoltaic)).
The project has been running for almost three years and is now in its final phase, in which the tools and processes developed will be implemented on pilot and production lines.
A multidisciplinary team of leading European RTOs and industries have collaborated their efforts in a joint 36-month effort to execute the related project activities.
The thin-film opto-electronic production technologies developed as part of this project will enable a wealth of new applications for solar cells, from installations on curved surfaces to building-integrated solar generation.
Organised as eight closely interrelated and interacting work packages, this coordinated European action strives for maximum impact in R&D, product and business development as well as impact in our society.
