Kurt J Lesker understands that not all OPV research is conducted with vacuum evaporation and there are others solution processed methods that exist.

In all these cases the metal electrodes required for device manufacture are thermally evaporated are and Kurt J Lesker is here to help. Our thermal evaporators easily integrate with our high-end gloveboxes and are ideal to put down metal contact layers for example.

Furthermore our gloveboxes come with a suite of accessories to help you with your OPV research ranging from whichever methodology you employ, ranging from:

  • Spin coaters - for solution processed OPV layers
  • Microbalances - for accurate weighing of organic precursor material
  • Hot plates - for annealing surfaces
  • Plasma cleaning units - for low pressure plasma cleaning of substrates
  • Epoxy dispensing units - for even application of epoxy required for encapsulation
  • uV curing units - to harden epoxy after application
  • Vacuum ovens - for curing and drying processes
  • Solar simulators - for checking the efficiency of OPV devices

Our gloveboxes have the advantages versus the competition:

  • Patented sealing technology - with purification down to 0.01ppm O2/H2O
  • Lowest leak rate on the market - a decade better than the rest (0.001% vol/hr)
  • High purifier capacity - O2 up to 60 litres / H2O up to 2 kg meaning longer regeneration cycles
  • Large freezer capacity - 30 litres placed on the ground to minimize vibration
  • Most accurate analysers used - know exactly what atmosphere you have in the glovebox
  • Advanced control features as standard - including chemistry software, large touchscreen panel, auto leak rate testing, auto gas circulation, ante-chamber auto evacuation
