cells, Mekoprint and Risø DTU gave away 10.000 OPV-powered (Organic PhotoVoltaic) flashlights during the LOPE-C Conference in Frankfurt, Germa- ny, end of June. The flashlights are a result of the cooperation between the scientists at Risø DTU and production experts at Mekoprint.

”Much better than any sales talk, we find that by giving all the participants in the conference a practical and fully functional product, they’ll get a hands-on proof of the capability of the technology. The convention attracts around 1.000 scientists and industrialists, but together with Risø DTU, we have manufactured ten times as many flashlights. On a wider scale, this means that many key people within the industry will receive samples of the flashlights to document the efficiency of the technology in a real application,” explains project manager at Mekoprint, Rasmus Brinkmann Andersen.


The flashlights are mass-produced using Risø DTU’s organic photovoltaic cells. Mekoprint has teamed up with Risø DTU developing the design and Mekoprint has manufactured the flexible PCBs and done the EMS- and boxbuilding work on the flashlights. The work has been funded by the EUDP Program from

erck KGaA, Germany, has signed a collabora- tion agreement with Nano-C, Inc. of West-


wood, MA, United States, a leading developer of na- nostructured carbon for use in energy and electronics applications. Both companies aim to jointly develop and commercialize advanced semiconducting ma- terials and formulations for applications in organic photovoltaics (OPV). Additionally, adding to its base of OPV materials, Merck will distribute PCBM fulle- rene derivative products, a family of semiconducting materials commonly used in OPV applications. The collaboration will target the development of material systems to go beyond the performance limitations of current-generation OPV materials. It will bring together Merck’s extensive experience with orga- nic semiconducting materials and Nano-C’s unique know-how and intellectual property in fullerene derivatives. Novel material concepts produced using intelligent design will enable power conversion effi- ciency values in excess of 10%, thereby creating new and broader market interest in organic photovoltaic technologies.


Nano-C is a leading developer of nanostructured carbon for use in energy and electronics applications. These materials include fullerenes, carbon nanotubes and their chemical derivatives. Nano-C is a privately held company founded in 2001.
