Synthesis and characterisation of organic materials

Organic materials used in electrical and ionically conducting/charged systems is a fast-growing research area to create electronics, iontronics and sensors.

Development and testing of ionically and electrically conducting organic materials

We help industrial clients and work with applied research in organic materials for printed electronics, bioelectrical systems and hybrid electronics.

In our innovation cluster we can thanks to state-of-the art labs (cleanrooms, printlabs) move from molecule to prototypes and small series production.

  • Synthes, chemical: development of materials, inks, electrolytes
  • Characterisation- testing, evaluation, printing, combinatory effects
  • Curing and printing - how does the material work in a production environment?
  • Material- and substrate combinations - adhesion, robustness, toxicity

Within the Innovation Cluster PEA we develop materials used to create electrically and ionically charged and conducting for circuits and systems. PEA is one of RISE's 100 test and demonstration facilities within there is a tight collaboration between RISE and LiU (University of Linköping), the Laboratory of Organic Electronics. This is a fast growing research area. Printed Electronics Arena, is based in Norrköping, Sweden
