3M™ Organic Electronics




3M™ Organic Electronics

3M™ Organic Electronics provides new materials to build next generation electronics and photonics devices. With a focus on organic semiconductors and dielectrics, these materials will enable the creation of products for:

  • Organic Thin Film Transistors (TFT) – notably for radio frequency identification (RFID) and display backplanes
  • Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED) for both display/signage and lighting applications

Although these materials may be applied by a variety of techniques including evaporation and thermal transfer, they are primarily designed for solution processing (via printing) as a way of creating organic electronic (OE) systems. The advent of high-volume, cost-effective OE print manufacturing technology will allow manufacturers of OE products to turn their existing materials into "inks" for printing.

A reliable and trusted technology partner, 3M offers a unique combination of skills and core capabilities to help customers harness the potential of 3M™ Organic Electronics technology.

Typical Organic Electronic Applications:

  • Displays for handheld devices
  • "Smart" packaging
  • Retail shelf labels
  • Automotive displays
  • RFID tags
  • Sensors
  • Instrumentation/gauges/readouts
  • E-books
  • Low-cost memory
