Oct 16, 2009 Ledon OLED Lighting GmbH & Co. KG. is a joint venture founded by Zumtobel Group (Austria) and Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and several employees of the Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems (IPMS) in Dresden.
Ledon OLED will be focusing on the development and production of light modules based on OLEDs, and aims to set up a team of 10-15 highly qualified specialists in its initial year.
The company will be based in Dresden, a key location for OLED technology in Europe. Ledon OLED will be drawing up a strategic agreement with Fraunhofer Gesellschaft that governs pilot production on the Fraunhofer IPMS pilot line in Dresden - see Fraunhofer opens Center for Organic Materials and Electronic Devices in Dresden (Nov 2008). This "world-beating" production line can turn out high-efficiency OLED panels on 370 x 470 mm2 substrates with a cycle time of three minutes.
Along with the production of OLED panels, Ledon OLED says that it will be developing and manufacturing complete OLED lighting solutions, including extremely robust contact and light-conducting elements, as well as concepts for addressing large-scale OLED systems.
