Founded in 2009, Orthogonal is providing effective, simple to implement, and low-cost technology for manufacturing organic electronics.
Organic electronic materials, such as organic light emitting diode (OLED) and organic thin-film transistor materials, are carbon-based polymer materials that show semiconductor properties. Orthogonal has developed fluorine-based photoresist and fluorinated solvents that enable direct patterning of organic electronics and other chemically sensitive materials using standard photolithographic equipment. Orthogonal’s photoresist can be easily integrated into manufacturing organic displays using existing infrastructure.
By bringing this technology to the $100B+ display industry, Orthogonal is leveraging the installed infrastructure to allow the facile manufacturing of advanced OLED displays quickly and without major capital investment. The company is getting ready to mass-produce this powerful disruptive technology.
