Scientific Tools that Boost your R&D
We provide simulation software and measurement hardware for research and development of OLED and solar cells to our customers in industry and academia. Our software is used to gain insight into device operation and for optimizing device performance.
Simulate light emission and absorption, light scattering and charge transport of solar cells and OLEDs with Setfos.
Paios performs various opto-electrical experiments on solar cells and OLEDs with one click. Store measurements in a database, analyse, compare and postprocess it directly in the Paios software.
A new software-version for the measurement platform Paios has just been released. Customers profit from new features for data analysis and measurement.
Also new software and hardware modules are now available.
Fluxim is proud to announce that Setfos version 4.3 is officially released. Setfos 4.3 contains some nice new features:
- Ray tracing can now be used for BSDF calculations. In this was light scattering of mirco-lenses and other high aspect ratio light management structures can be simulated.
- 64-bit version and 70% calculation speed increase.
- Implicit Drift Diffusion solver: Transient simulations with a larger timestep without loss of accuracy. In some cases the computation time is reduced from 15 minutes to 1 minute.
- Visualization of imported profile data and design options for micro-lenses & pyramids.
Customers will receive an e-mail with the download link to Setfos 4.3. In case you did not receive it please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The new flyer for Setfos 4 gives you an overview of the simulation options with Setfos Emission, Drift-Diffusion, Absorption and Light Scattering.
Fluxim will present the latest developments in modelling and measurement of Perovskite solar cells at the ABX-PV conference in Barcelona, Spain on 3-4 March 2016.
On January 13 , Martin Neukom, will be presenting the latest results on modelling and measuring Perovskite solar cells at the Royal society of Chemistry “Next Generation Materials for Solar Photovoltaics” conference in London (http://www.rsc.org/events/detail/19252) .
setfos is an outstanding program for assisting in the development of OLED displays. It provides the predictive capabilities, and physical insight into the optical performance that is needed to optimise your design. It's a fast and powerful package that a user will immediately benefit from.

The setfos software is a fundamental optical simulation tool for the development of highly efficient OLED structures. New features of this software like including several different emission zones are of major importance for developing efficient white light OLED structures containing more than one emitting material. The flexibility, speed, and reliability of this software combined with its huge variety of simulation tools concerning various physical key quantities like angular dependence, color coordinates, or reflection spectra allow further improvement and basic insight of OLEDs.
Dr. Jan Blochwitz-Nimoth CTO Novaled AG, Dresden, Germany
I have used setfos extensively to investigate the emission zone in polymer light-emitting diodes and electrochemical cells. The speed, reliability, and flexibility of this software make it ideal for a wide range of applications, particularly in the optimization of device structures or in the fundamental research of device physics.

We successfully characterized the transient response of silicon-based solar cells with this measurement system. For instance, we were able to determine the electron mobility and photo-carrier lifetime.

This automated measurement platform allows one to perform a series of measurements on organic solar cells within a matter of minutes, which otherwise would have taken days.

At the Holst Centre, in the OLED Lighting program, the setfos modeling tool has proven its worth by enabling accurate predictions of light emission from OLEDs on glass, plastic and metal substrates. I have experienced firsthand that this sophisticated and user-friendly software package can be used to interpret measurements and extract the relevant parameters efficiently. Such information is essential in order to improve light emission from novel OLED device designs. Fluxim also provides excellent customer support by hosting annual workshops, providing assistance whenever requested and by inquiring what features are considered valuable and essential.

setfos is a very convenient tool to be used to predict the optical and electrical outcome from OLED and OPV devices. It also shows a physical insight of the charge transport properties in organic electronic system. The user interface is friendly, and it is an ideal tool for optimization of organic device structures.

Setfos is a great product for researchers who want to simulate the performance of organic solar cells without having to design and build custom simulation software. By licensing Setfos, we were able to quickly answer many research questions and publish results in a matter of months.
Jon Bartelt, Stanford University, Stanford CA, USA
Paios is a great platform to comprehensively measure organic semiconductor devices. For us, it would have been much more difficult to obtain insight into physical processes without the Paios system. Together with complementary simulation from Setfos we learned a lot about our OPV and OLEC devices.
Sandra Jenatsch, EMPA, Dübendorf, Switzerland
The Setfos optical module is an extremely powerful tool for Organic Light-Emitting Diodes modeling. Different types of structures have been simulated very accurately and Setfos helps us considerably reduce the number of experiments. We are also very happy with the constant support provided by Fluxim.
