ITO Glass Substrates, 20 x 15 mm (Legacy, Generation I)

Product Code S101
Price $300.00 ex. VAT

Pre-patterned ITO substrates for OLED and OPV fabrication and testing. Use these substrates with our electrode deposition masks (6-pixel design) to create individual pixels.

There is a newer version of this product. Our generation I and II substrates and masks will be discontinued soon and are only available while stocks last. Please contact us for further details.

Ossila's ITO substrates are manufactured from commercial-grade ITO used in the flat-panel display industry in order to endure high consistency and very low defect rates. Each substrate has six ITO fingers, which when used with an Ossila evaporation shadow mask, creates six independent devices with dimensions of 1.5 mm x 3 mm (v1 cathode mask) or 1.5 x 4 mm (v2 cathode mask).

An additional cathode strip at the top of the substrate allows easy connection of both anodes and cathodes by attachment of electrical connection legs. A simple cleaning procedure then provides a clean and hydrophilic surface perfect for spinning PEDOT:PSS.

We use the following cleaning routine for OPVs and OLEDs:

  • Sonicate in 1 vol.% Hellmanex solution for 5 mins in hot sonic bath
  • Rinse twice in hot water (dump rinse)
  • Sonicate in isopropyl alcohol (IPA) for 5 min in warm sonic bath
  • Rinse twice in warm water (dump rinse)

Hydrophilic surface treatment

We recommend finishing the cleaning routine with a final step of either sonication in sodium hydroxide (NaOH) solution or treatment with UV Ozone, which will provide a more uniformly hydrophilic surface to make the deposition of PEDOT:PSS more reproduceable.

          • Sonicate in fresh 10 vol.% NaOH solution for 5 mins in warm sonic bath
          • Rinse twice in hot water (dump rinse)
          • Store immersed in water until required
          • N2 blow dry

          Note: Exact times will depend upon the power and temperature of the sonic bath. Furthermore, excessive sonication in NaOH can also increase the resistance of the ITO surface.
