Presentation Summary

JR has a long-term experience in the development, characterization, testing, and demonstrator implementation of ferroelectric sensors. They have developed and patented a screen printable, ferroelectric paste based on the copolymer P(VDF:TrFE). By fabricating a fully printed 2D-structured sensor build up, where the sensor active material is sandwiched between two electrodes, new and innovative concepts for realizing HMIs can be realized.

Speaker Biography (Gregor Scheipl)

Gregor Scheipl studied earth sciences with focus on petrology and geochemistry at the Karl-Franzens University in Graz. He finished his studies with the applied master thesis: "Purification and chemical characterization of organic semiconducting materials" in 2005. Since 2008 he is employed as a permanent scientist at JOANNEUM RESEARCH/Materials in Austria.
His main interests are fabrication and characterization of physical sensors as well as ferroelectric polymers, pyro‐ and piezoelectricity and printing/imprinting techniques.
Due to the exceptionally high potential and maturity of PyzoFlex® technology, Gregor's focus has shifted to business development in order to successfully commercialize PyzoFlex®.
