Armin Wedel

Division Director | Functional Polymer Systems @ Fraunhofer IAP


Dr. Armin Wedel studied Physics at the University of Rostock from 1981 to 1986. In 1992 he received the Ph.D degree in Physics at the University of Potsdam. From 1986 until 1991 he works as a scientific research assistant at the Institute of Polymer Chemistry of the Academy of Science in Teltow. Since 1992 he works at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research in several research positions. He was a member of research group of physically active polymers with the topic of nonlinear optical properties of side-chain polymers and works as a research assistant in the field of OLEDs, OTFTs and OPV. Now he is responsible for the development of the technology of organic light emitting diodes (OLED) from the layout to the encapsulation and organic photovoltaic in several applications. Since 2006 he is head of the Department of Functional Materials and Devices at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research and Division Director of Functional Polymers. Since 2009 he is involved in the development of environmentally friendly quantum dot materials as a new class of emissive materials for future display and lighting applications. He holds more than 18 patents, 70 publications in various journals. In 2012 he received an award of the Korean Society Display (Korean Information Display Society) for outstanding achievements in the field of synthesis and application of environmentally friendly quantum dots (QD) for display technology. He is the President of the German Flat Panel Forum (DFF e.V.) since 2020 and member of the overseas advisory boards of the International Conference on Display Technology (ICDT), China and of the International Meeting on Information Displays (IMID), Korea.
