About the project:
UPMOST (Ultrafast laser Processing for MObile diSplay Technology) is devoted to the development of a non-thermal, ultra-precision machining process utilizing femtosecond lasers and novel optical systems for beam shaping and pulse shaping. The aim is to provide a fully customized fabrication mean for high resolution mobile displays as submicron precision is required as the pixel size of such HD displays decreases.
Developing innovative processes to overcome the challenges posed by the complex multi-layered geometry of electronic screens, always smaller pixels and the use of sensitive organic materials. These developments aim to define the characteristic quantities of the laser / material interaction (ablation thresholds, material flow rate, penetration depth per pulse) for various materials, in particular, organic materials, used in the manufacture of electronic screens.
Overall budget: EUR 2.57 million
