FLOIM will develop an automated process for optical assembly of optoelectronic devices, based on optical quality injection overmoulding. Freeform and microstructured optical surfaces are generated directly on the components through thermoplastic microreplication, using microstructured inserts. The technology aims to simplify the assembly routes for heterogeneously integrated optoelectronics, with drastic cost reduction, high productivity and improved device performance. 

The task of RECENDT is the inspection and quality assurance. For this purpose, two specially adapted OCT systems (one of them is designed for inline measurements in injection molding) will be developed. Moreover, RECENDT is Work Package Leader of "WP 4: Sensors, Inspection and Machine Intelligence".
