Novaled AG and Holst Centre will collaborate under a joint development agreement to investigate the feasibility and benefits of Novaled's dopants in Holst Centre's organic TFT (OTFT) technologies qualified for displays and circuits.

Novaled's doping technology contributes to very high power efficiencies and long lifetimes in OLEDs by improving charge carrier injection and transport in the organic layers. Novaled has shown that these effects are also relevant for organic TFT, as the carrier injection from drain and source into the organic material has a major influence on the device performance. Novaled currently develops dopant and host materials that can be processed both in vacuum and in solution.

"We are quite pleased to work closely together with Holst Centre on OTFTs based on the Novaled dopants," said Jan Blochwitz-Nimoth, chief technology officer of Novaled. "In the future, OTFTs can be integrated into display backplanes and other driving electronics like organic RFID. They will change the way we use electronics today through several advantages of organic electronic devices such as large area compatibility, reduced costs, easy manufacturability and environmental sustainability."
