Abstract: The project's objective is to implement the benefits of organic photovoltaic (OPV). These benefits lie in its flexible and lightweight nature, the potential for large area application and the suitability for mass production in a roll to roll process. Like other organic components, OPV is used for mobile devices and systems. Especially the combination of OPV, organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), polymer electronics and energy storage technologies offer new application possibilities.
Due to their potential to enable new features such as flexibility and partial transparency, these systems could find application in field s of architecture, life sciences, and clothing.
