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.
What our Customers say about us
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.

The PAIOS/SETFOS package has been an asset to our research capability in CSIRO Energy and a key tool in our research and assessment of next generation thin-film photovoltaics, in particular organic and perovskite solar cells. One of the key points of differentiation – and a clear attraction – has been flexibility of the system and the ease in which user-defined experiments can be created. Our Team has appreciated the interaction with Fluxim and realised this has been much more than a transactional experience – we’ve formed a real partnership between developers and researchers. Over the past 2 years we have had the opportunity to suggest end-user modifications to the PAIOS system which have been genuinely considered and in most cases implemented in subsequent version updates. Such a client-developer relationship has been mutually beneficial, ultimately as an improved research tool, yet more than that it helped us build trust and respect as researchers.

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.
Dr. Ian Parker, Materials Development Manager DuPont Displays, Santa Barbara, 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
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.
Dr. Janelle Leger University of California Santa Cruz, USA
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.
Dr. Ng Ging-Meng, Research Staff Member
Institute of Materials Research & Engineering (IMRE), A*STAR, Singapore
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
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.
