Isorg SA has completed the construction of its pilot manufacturing line. The company was a 2010 startup that prints optoelectronic sensors on plastic and glass surfaces to create novel forms of detection, gesture control and image sensing.

The company has stated that it is qualifying its production process with customers and initial products are likely to feature sensor strips in toys on the market in 2013.

However, the Isorg technology has produced a wealth of other application ideas ranging from automated brightness controls for displays that take into account ambient conditions to non-touch user interfaces that can prevent the spread of bacteria in medical applications.

The company was formed in May 2010 to commercialize printed, organic photonic sensor research at CEA-Liten (Grenoble, France).

A typical organic photodetector material is PEDOT-PSS (polythylenedioxythiophene mixed with polystyrenesulfonate). It has the advantage that it can be processed in solution on to low-cost plastic or glass substrates under ambient air and ambient temperature conditions rather than vacuum and high temperature processes.

Isorg has also said that it plans to create a high-volume production line in 2012, able to make plastic electronic sensors on larger substrates. For display applications Isorg has said it is prepared to license its technology to Asian display manufacturers.

Isorg, founded in 2010, is included in version 13.0 of the Silicon 60 list of emerging startups published by EE Times. Isorg entered the Silicon 60 at version 12.0 in April 2011.
