Printed electronics are at a pivotal moment. There are not only tremendous opportunities for innovation and growth in new verticals and industries, but also the chance to define how we bring printed electronics into a new era of infrastructures through cooperation and partnerships.
PARC, a Xerox company, has actively built a unique library of PE devices and processes to apply innovation in products, engaging with all the players from material makers to application companies. Janos Veres of PARC will discuss the unique opportunity to "set the rules" for the future of printed electronics, including design, manufacturing processes, and applications already available at PARC. Through the lens of the future of manufacturing infrastructure spearheaded by PARC, he will explore how printed electronics are now part of the larger and growing trend of how we "make" things differently. He will also detail the steps already taken and need to be made in order to make this a reality.
Speaker Biography (Janos Veres)
Janos Veres joined PARC to manage its Printed Electronics team. His current interests are in combining disruptive material, process, and device technologies -- for printed, flexible circuits; sensor and memory arrays; batteries and display devices -- all with a focus on early commercialization opportunities. Janos has experience in components such as novel printed circuits, organic transistors, and printable semiconductors; applications such as OLEDs, displays, and RFID; as well as printing/coating technologies including electrophotography, flexography, and offset printing.
Before joining PARC, Janos was the CTO at PolyPhotonix, where he developed radically new process technologies for OLED devices. Prior to that, he worked at Eastman Kodak as their Program Manager of Printed Electronics, and was a Business Research Associate at Merck Chemicals (formerly Avecia) where he led several of the world's first demonstrators built using novel electronic materials. Janos also set up unique pilot production lines for solution coating when he was responsible for Organic Photoreceptor development at Gestetner Byfleet.
An author on over 20 patents and 40 publications, Janos has published key findings in the physics of organic semiconductor materials such as interface phenomena and the use of blends and phase separation. Dr. Janos Veres holds a Ph.D. in Solid State Electronics from Imperial College in London and an MSc in Physical Electronics with distinction from Lviv Technical University in Ukraine.
