Description

The Roll-to-roll laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art tools for sheet-to-sheet and roll-to-roll deposition of thin-films on flexible foils at large volumes. The tools include amongst other:

  • Roll-to-roll vacuum deposition of metals and metal oxide thin-films on flexible foils
  • Roll-to-roll slot-die coating of solution processable thin-films on flexible foils
  • Sheet-to-sheet slot-die coating of solution processable thin-films
  • Roll-to-roll lamination
  • Roll-to-sheet nanoimprint lithography
  • Tools for spray coating
  • Device manufacturing tools

We have expertise in coating of various functional (continuous or nanostructured) thin-films from smart materials at large scale. Main application areas include solar cells, light-emitting devices and energy storage applications, but can be extended to other areas where high volume production of thin-films on flexible foils is required.
