Photovoltaic Substrate (8 Pixel) System Components
Substrates and associated deposition masks for fabricating perovskite photovoltaics (also useful for OLEDs and OPV).
ITO Glass - Photovoltaic Substrates (8 Pixel)
Pre-patterned ITO Glass substrates for OPV/OLED testing. Use with our cathode deposition mask (E501) to create 8 individual pixels or (E502) to create a single large pixel.
Photovoltaic Substrate Packs (8 Pixel)
Ossila's Edgeless 8 Pixel Substrate Pack contains the substrate consumables necessary for creating and testing fully encapsulated LEDs and PVs for measurement under ambient conditions. It is designed to reduce edge ingress in order to improve device stability and maximise volume of statistical data.
FTO Coated Glass (Unpatterned)
FTO (Fluorine-doped Tin Oxide Glass) is a transparent conductive metal oxide that can be used in the fabrication of transparent electrodes for thin film photovoltaics, such as organic photovoltaic, amorphous silicon, cadmium telluride, dye sensitised solar cells, and hybrid perovskites. FTO glass also has a varied range of other applications, including touch screen displays, electromagnetic interference/radio frequency interference shielding, heated glass, anti-static coatings, and light emitting diodes. There are several properties of FTO glass that make it suitable for the fabrication of a wide range of optoelectronic devices these include low surface resistivity, high optical transmittance, scratch and abrasion resistant,...
Deposition Masks (8-Pixel Design)
Ossila have produced a range of masks for vacuum deposition of materials onto our standardized 8-pixel substrate design. These include masks which are used to deposit an electrode and define an active area for thin film electronic devices, masks for the deposition of semiconducting materials, and masks for the deposition of conductive busbars -- all to obtain the highest device performances possible. All our deposition masks are made from stainless steel, with the option of an additional spacer layer. More information on the specifications can be found below. Ossila provide the following masks that are suitable for use with our S211...
Measurement Aperture Mask for Photovoltaic Substrates (8 Pixel)
A measurement aperture mask with electrochemically-etched holes to define the active area of a pixel during measurement and to stop indirect/scattered light when using our push-fit connection boards. Useful for OPV measurements under solar simulators or OLEDs with luminance meters. For use with our 8 Pixel OPV/OLED substrates (S211).
Push Fit Test Board for Photovoltaic Substrates (8 pixel)
A test board for making electrical connections to the photovoltaic (8 pixel substrates) substrates without the need for electrical connection legs.
Smart PV and OLED Board with Easy JV Sweep Software
This measurement system is designed to enable OLED and PV testing and characterisation via intuitive Easy JV Sweep software. Comprised of a main multiplexor board, an interchangeable and customisable substrate board, and control software, the system allows academics and researchers to conduct a number of measurements
Electrical Connection Legs for ITO Glass Substrates
Electrical connection legs for making electrical attachment to ITO-coated glass for test and measurement purposes. The E241 legs are designed for use with 0.7 mm thick glass. The legs clip on easily,securelym and have an industry standard 0.1 inch (2.54 mm) pitch for insertion into a wide variety of test boards, including standard PCB prototyping boards and Ossila's OLED/OPV test board.
PEDOT:PSS (poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) polystyrene sulfonate) is a transparent conductive polymer consisting of a mixture of two ionomers. Due to its unique combination of conductivity, transparency, ductility, and ease of processing, PEDOT:PSS has become a benchmark material in thin-film electronic fabrication. PEDOT:PSS can be used as an interfacial layer for hole transport in organic light emitting diodes, organic photovoltaics, and perovskite photovoltaics. It can also be used as a replacement for transparent conductors such as ITO or FTO and is used commonly in applications where the underlying substrate is flexible. Ossila supplies a range of PEDOT:PSS dispersions that are suitable for different applications these include: Al 4083 which...
Encapsulation Coverslips for Photovoltaics and OLEDs
Coverslips, also known as Encapsulation Glass Slides. Available as part of our substrate pack or in sets of 100, the coverslip is part of the encapsulation system used with our OLED/OPV ITO patterned substrates. It provides robust protection for manual handling of a completed device and prevents direct oxygen/water ingress, allowing for storage and measurement under ambient conditions for several weeks (edge ingress will eventually occur).
Encapsulation Epoxy for Photovoltaics and OLEDs
A light-curable epoxy suitable for solar cell and LED encapsulation which sets at wavelengths of up to 600 nm and is safe for use with most organic materials.
Spin Coater Chucks
We stock a range of milled polypropylene (solvent safe) chucks compatible with the Ossila Spin Coater. The interchangeable chucks have a push-fit base that fit firmly onto the Ossila Spin Coater's coupling for ease of use.
