|Low Temperature Sintering Nanoparticle Inks for Printed and Flexible Electronic Devices on Plastics|
|Keywords: Nanoparticle Inks , printed and flexible electronics , Low Temperature Sintering|
|The printed and flexible electronics bares a great potential to become an industry of $300B in next 20 years. While more and more companies and research institutes around the world are joining into this industry for a large variety of exciting applications, however, there still lack of extraordinary successful stores in product commercialization. To facilitate the faster product commercialization of printed and flexible electronic devices, it is necessary for the industry working together more closely on materials, processes, and device integration. At NanoMas Technologies, Inc., we have been keeping challenging ourselves to bring in more materials that would be better suitable for needs in the development and commercialization of high performance printed and flexible electronics on low cost substrates, such as paper and plastics. We have developed a variety of nanoparticle based inks with different electric functionalities. Those truly nano-sized materials (mostly less than 5 nm) have low sintering temperatures, and thus can be processed on most widely used plastic substrates. In this presentation, we will also discuss other key issues that may critically affect product commercialization, such as the cost, printing technique and throughput, processing speed, and logistics in supply chain management, etc.|
