With our innovative team of experts, we drive product development dynamically forward, thus enabling a rapid market entry.
HySPRINT is formed by the five labs working on silicon deposition, perovskite tandem devices, laser characterization, nanoimprint lithography and generative fabrication.
GEN FAB is a Joint Lab between HZB and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin within the HySPRINT Innovation Lab.
Inkjet-printed applications - PV, LEDs and integrated devices
Inkjet-printing has evolved into a reliable, versatile and cost-effective industrial production technology in many areas from graphics to printed electronic applications. In combination with so-called metal halide perovskites, inkjet printing has raised high expectations for a cost-effective and versatile production technology for photovoltaic and lighting applications, as the printing process is scalable to print large areas. Such functional electronic inks have also been successfully used to realize the conducting structures that feature in printed circuits, RFID applications, logic systems and electrodes in optoelectronics, leading to examples of high throughput roll-to-roll fabrication of such devices. In addition to this, inkjet printing is a suitable technique for highly accurate additive and subtractive processes, such as combinatorial printing or module structuring which go beyond the usage in the area of photovoltaics.
