In recent years, Dresden has become a centre of research on organic semiconductor materials and systems. In order to make the results useful for production, a further optimisation of the production processes and the establishment and testing of pilot production plants are necessary.

For this reason, a Center for Organic Materials and Electronic Devices Dresden (COMEDD) was established at the Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems (IPMS). COMEDD – by now a proper subdivision of the Fraunhofer IPMS – combines research and development activities for the production, integration, and technology development of electronic construction components based on organic semiconductors. COMEDD’s mission is the customer and use oriented research, development, and pilot fabrication of new building block concepts and production methods for these organic materials. COMEDD embodies a leading European production-related research and development centre for organic semiconductors with a focus on organic light-emitting diodes and vacuum technologies.
