Bumblebee is Simbeyond’s state-of-the-art simulation software, which is specifically optimized for molecular-scale simulations of opto-electronic processes in disordered systems, such as OLEDs, OPV and OFETs.

Experimental OLED R&D processes often lead to high costs and throughput time for both device manufacturers and chemical suppliers. Bumblebee allows you to replace a significant part of trial-and-error R&D processes, rustling in higher cost efficiency and shorter time-to-market. All of that can be done from your laptop in your own private cloud, thanks to the intuitive web interface.

Advanced Simulations

Material evaluation

Bumblebee allows you to predict the electrical characteristics, efficiency, color point and lifetime of devices based on material parameters obtained from a few dedicated experiments or from quantum chemistry. By building a database of materials, the performance of any combination of these materials can be predicted.

Research excellence

Bumblebee is already intensively used both in an academic environment to perform cutting-edge research, as well as in industry to more efficiently develop state-of-the-art OLED stacks and solve real-life problems. There are many other areas of application within which bumblebee can be used, including organic photovoltaics (OPV) and organic field-effect transistors (OFET).

Full 3-D device model

Bumblebee is the first on the market to offer 3D molecular-scale mechanistic device modelling for organic devices. The unique mechanistic approach to device modelling provided by bumblebee allows one to analyze, predict and improve the performance of your devices, not only for today’s stack architectures but also for tomorrow’s.
