Inventing new organic materials for more ecological and cheaper semiconductors using our Ultra High vacuum systems.
Organic electronics allows for a new revolution in the production of more ecological and cheaper semiconductors, equipped with more properties, notably for lighting, flexible displays, solar cells and energy recovery. The most researched device applications have been organic photovoltaics (OPVs), organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs), and organic field-effect transistors (OFETs).
Creating high-performance organic electronic devices has required a detailed understanding of the mechanisms and processes that make them work, as well as those that lead to performance losses, so that materials and device architectures can be appropriately tuned.
Vinci manufactures state of the art deposition systems for the growth of these multilayer devices. Hybrid systems combine multiple PVD techniques in-situ such as E-beam, thermal evaporation, organic evaporation and even sputtering so multi-layer organic/inorganic structures can be grown under a controlled environment.
Examples of such installations for the growth of these organic materials can be seen at Technion, Institute of Technology, Israel for Metal Oxide Semiconductors, Swatch group connected with Glove Box, CEA INES France for OPV, IIT Guwahati India for OPV & OFET.
In addition to deposition systems, Vinci manufactures permeation analysis systems for the evaluation of barrier efficiency of encapsulants and barrier layers that seal these organic stacks. Quality control of barrier efficiency can be rapidly measured with helium diffusion in a vacuum environment. Such systems are used by our customers in BASF, Toray Plastics (food packaging), I-Components (UHB encapsulants) and INES for OPV.
