Fraunhofer FEP

Fraunhofer FEP logoFraunhofer FEP (The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology) is a research institute that focuses on innovative solutions in the fields of vacuum coating, surface treatment and organic semic­conductors. The core competences technologies for the organic electronics and IC/system design are electron beam technology, sputtering, plasma-activated deposition and high-rate PECVD. The Fraunhofer FEP offers a wide range of possibilities for research, development and pilot production.

In 2009, the Fraunhofer IPMS launched COMEDD (the Center for Organics, Materials and Electronic Devices Dresden), as a venue to develop OLED lighting and OLED microdisplay technologies. COMEDD started as a department at IPMS, then turned into an independent Fraunhofer Institute in 2012, and later it was incorporated into the FEP. In 2024 COMEDD, which now focuses on OLED microdisplays, was moved back into the Fraunhofer IPMS.

Fraunhofer IAP

Fraunhofer IAP logoThe Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research (IAP) develops bio-based and synthetic polymers, from the laboratory to the industrial scale. Applications are diverse across many markets, such as bio-based packaging, lightweight materials, truck tires and more.

One of the applications being researched and developed at the Fraunhofer IAP is luminescent materials for displays. The IAP functional polymer systems division, looks into a broad range of materials, including light-emitting polymers and quantum dots. The focus lies in solution processing of these materials with a strong focus on printing methods.

Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems (Fraunhofer IPMS)

Fraunhofer IPMS LogoThe Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems (Fraunhofer IPMS) is a research institute dealing with electronic, mechanical and optical components and their integration into devices and systems.

The Fraunhofer IPMS has been working on OLED since 2000, and in 2009 it launched a new department called COMEDD (the Center for Organics, Materials and Electronic Devices Dresden) to handle its OLED research and pilot fabrication. COMEDD was turned into an independent Fraunhofer Institute in 2012, later it became a business unit at Fraunhofer FEP, and in early 2024 it moved back into the IPMS.


The COMEDD researchers used to develop OLED lighting technologies, and OLED microdisplay technologies. Today most of the focus is into OLED microdisplays.
