AI and HSI enable new inspection system to quickly measure foil quality for organic electronics with high spatial resolution

Just a few hours instead of weeks: Hyperspectral vision speeds up barrier foil inspection

Press release (No. 3) - Fraunhofer IWS Dresden /

All over the world, researchers are focusing on protecting organic light-emitting diodes, solar cells and circuits against humidity and other harmful environmental impacts by using improved foils. The idea is to make organic electronics components more robust and thus more durable. At the “LOPEC” trade fair in March 2021, the Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology IWS Dresden is presenting a concept that will, in future, check the quality of these barrier foils during production – until now these analyses have required up to several weeks. The new Fraunhofer IWS system is based on hyperspectral imaging and artificial intelligence (AI).
