The Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research (IAP) develops bio-based and synthetic polymers, from the laboratory to the industrial scale. Applications are diverse across many markets, such as bio-based packaging, lightweight materials, truck tires and more.
The Fraunhofer IAP is active in the display industry, with its IAP functional polymer systems division looking into a broad range of materials, including light-emitting polymers and quantum dots. The focus lies in solution processing of these materials with a strong focus on printing methods.
The institute develops quantum dot materials as light converting materials for LEDs and MicroLEDs. The IAP participates in the CoCoMe research project that develops printed QD color filters.
