Displays and Sensors
Innovation speed in the electronic devices market is key. Our customers are looking to bring new and better products to the market rapidly, while trying to utilize existing solutions as much as possible. Our high throughput toolsets, combined with our team of experts from the various disciplines, allows us to find the optimal combination of materials & processes to achieve your groundbreaking device performance while working with real-world materials and processes.
Below are a few examples of critical materials challenges:
OLED stack optimization, encapsulation and outcoupling
Optimization of your OLED device requires a careful tuning of the various layers, including top and bottom electrodes. These materials are often highly sensitive to environmental conditions. Intermolecular’s proprietary deposition tools allow us to develop stack elements that optimize your device, while closely monitoring process conditions. Our electrical and optical characterization experts have a deep understanding of the device structure to help optimize performance.
Bringing innovations in the field of optical sensors requires a skillset across a broad range of disciplines. Our processing capabilities cover both the deposition space as well as the ‘wets’ processing needed for optical incoupling materials and other stack elements. Our metrology and simulation team brings together experts from electrical, optical and processing backgrounds to support you finding your solution quickly.
New metal oxide thin film transistor (TFT) materials for display pixel switching
Metal-oxide TFT materials, with their moderate mobility and relative good stability, represent an emerging technology which is expected to be used not only for large size display panels but also flexible display products. Intermolecular offers customers access to a wide variety of materials options and the ability to rapidly synthesize and characterize new TFT oxide materials and stacks using high-throughput experimentation.
Intermolecular has experience in materials discovery for critical display applications using our physical vapor deposition (PVD). Advanced optical and device modeling and simulation as well as UV-Vis, angular haze-meter, SEM/EDX, XRR, XRF, XRD, XPS, nanoindenter, and scratch constant measurement allow for a deep and accelerated understanding of the thin film properties.
