New Guide Available: Ossila's Guide to OLED Testing (Lifetime & Performance)
Posted on 30 May 11:03
Whether you are new to the world of testing OLEDs, or just want to try a new method of doing so, we have created a detailed video and written guide to OLED testing aimed at providing a helpful overview of the subject. Specifically, this guide covers two types of OLED testing - performance testing and lifetime testing.
Meet the Ossila Directors, Pt. 1: Prof. David Lidzey
Posted on 27 Apr 09:32
As part of our ongoing series of interviews with the faces behind Ossila Ltd, we took the time to have a chat with the Chairman of Ossila Ltd, Prof. David Lidzey. Aside from being on Ossila Ltd’s Executive Board, David is also a Professor of Physics at the University of Sheffield. In this interview, David shares some anecdotes of his professional journey so far, as well as some personal insights.
We are pleased to announce the latest addition to our range of processing equipment: the Ossila Syringe Pump.
Our vision behind the syringe pump was to give scientists complete control over the solutions they use in the labs - whether this was for use in the synthesis of new materials, the fabrication of thin-film electronic devices, the study of microfluidics and flow chemistry, or the formation of emulsion. At Ossila, one of the first uses in our laboratories for the syringe pump was in the fabrication of perovskite-based devices using new ink formulations. The syringe pump is helping us to develop a new series of mixed-halide perovskite inks based upon advanced processing techniques (such as non-solvent quenching). These advanced techniques have helped us push our in-house power conversion efficiency values up to 16.6%.
9 Questions With Ossila's Excilight PhD Student, Marco!
Posted on 11 Apr 13:13
It has been a year since Marco, our EU-funded Marie Curie Excilight PhD student, first joined the team at Ossila. Marco is from Pomezia, Italy, and has an MSc in Materials Science and Technology from the University of Rome Tor Vergata. Doing a PhD whilst working full-time in industry is an impressive feat that few have managed to accomplish! In this interview, Marco shares his experiences of both worlds so far, as well as his thoughts on a few candid questions.
Being the first small-molecule electron acceptor to enable improved power conversion efficiencies (PCEs) over the best-performing fullerene acceptor (PC70BM), ITIC represents an exciting new advancement for organic photovoltaics (OPVs). Zhao et al. reported this in inverted-architecture PBDB-T (PCE12) devices, which achieved PCEs of 7.45% when PC70BM was used as the electron acceptor, and a staggering 10.68% when ITIC was used instead .
Whether we are controlling an instrument or performing a measurement, our ability to write code for our experiments is vital. At Ossila, we also need a means of providing code to our customers so that they can get the most out of our equipment. Our solution was the Python programming language...
Molybdenum Disulfide & Tungsten Disulfide: Now Available!
Posted on 21 Feb 11:35
Two new transition metal dichalcogenides, molybdenum disulfide and tungsten disulfide, have now been added to our 2D materials collection of powders and suspensions. At Ossila, both of these materials are available in powder forms for depositing monolayer and multilayers as well as pre-made suspensions to enable quick and easy deposition!
Happy Work Anniversary to Our Customer Service Administrator!
Posted on 15 Feb 09:21
If you’re one of our customers, you may have already communicated in some way with our lovely Customer Service Administrator, Rosie. Recently, Rosie celebrated her 1-year work anniversary at Ossila! In conjunction with her career milestone, we decided to sit down and have a quick chat with her.
