Nine months after its founding, the Fraunhofer Center for Organic Materials and Electronic Devices Dresden (COMEDD) has installed a new cluster system to support both research and pilot production efforts. Thanks to funds provided by the local German state of Saxony and via the European Regional Development Fund, the new COMEDD facilities provide a full suite of liquid-phase and vacuum processes with which to make organic LED (OLED)-on-silicon microdisplays.

The cluster system, which will be used for both research and development activity and pilot-level device production, was supplied and built by the Korean company SNU Precision. It is able to fabricate devices on 8-inch silicon wafers using techniques such as metal and electron-beam evaporation, thin-film encapsulation and etching. At an official ceremony to dedicate COMEDD - which was set up as a separate entity last year - and its new equipment, Saxony Minister of State Sabine von Schorlemer said that the upgrade would enable the facility to meet demand from both the local region and abroad.
