Students from Kiel build flexible organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs)

Within the framework of our RollFlex project, master students from Kiel investigated flexible light emitting diodes during their semester internship 2016/2017. After thorough literature studies, they developed own concepts to create organic light emitting diodes that they subsequently produced in Kiel’s Nano laboratory and tested in the optics lab. Their work was done in competing teams and the team with the best and most efficient OLED was appointed winner. The images show the students engaged in conducting optical and electronic characterisation of their self-produced OLEDs. The results from the internship work contribute to further the research and development in the project as the capacity and life time of the diodes for different substrate materials were investigated.
