Orthogonal’s proprietary photoresist system, OSCoR, is the world’s only photolithography chemical set compatible with organic electronic materials. Using the company’s non-interacting photoresist system, customers can pattern a wide range of semiconducting and conducting materials with currently installed electronic manufacturing equipment and processes. Three examples include: (1) Ultra-high resolution front plane RGB sub-pixel patterning for AMOLED displays; (2) Organic Photo Diodes for, "Behind-the-OLED-Display," Fingerprint Sensors; (3) Organic Thin Film Transistors (O-TFT) for Flexible electronics. Based on fluorine chemistry, OSCoR is an earth-friendly green technology, designed to be nontoxic, inflammable, and recyclable.
