Smart Labels Progress - From Tipping Point to Reality
Dr Janos Veres, Area Manager
PARC, a Xerox company
This presentation was given at Printed Electronics USA 2013 on Nov 20, 2013.
Printed smart labels and systems are quickly gaining momentum, from a technology on the verge to substantial market opportunity. In this presentation, Janos Veres of PARC will explore the latest advances in printed systems, including demos and examples from both real-world and up-and-coming applications. He will also discuss the partnerships towards commercialization, and direction we must go to scale the technology to production level.
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.
