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
- Low-cost memory
