Abstract: Solar UV radiation is a well-known cause of degradation in various organic materials. This leads to unwanted changes in color, strength and other physic-chemical changes in the polymer structure. With the development of printed organic electronics there is an ever growing interest in their protection from damaging effects - e.g. photodegradation. In this study we present a method for the deposition and characterization of transparent UV-absorbing films on flexible organic substrates.
