XTPL Changing The Rules Of The Game (Graphene Europe 2018)

Dr Filip Granek, CEO

Presentation Summary

XTPL presents a comprehensive approach to print nanometric conductive lines at unprecedented flexibility, accuracy, and low cost. Both the fundamental process of a guided assembly of nanoparticles and its implementation in the XTPL Submicron Lab Printer will be discussed. We will also demonstrate a number of potential applications of the XTPL technology.

Speaker Biography (Filip Granek)

Filip Granek is the founder of XTPL S.A. and the inventor of a globally innovative, additive technology, protected by international patent applications, enabling ultra-precise printing of nanomaterials. Unique printing system designed by XTPL allows for extremely accurate application of the nanoink, specially formulated in the company's laboratories, and creation of dedicated submicron structures. The breakthrough of this solution lies in enabling precision that cannot be achieved by any other printing method in the world. It will facilitate the production of advanced devices such as solar cells, displays or biosensors using cheap and scalable methods of printing. Filip Granek is one of the world's best specialists in modern technologies based on nanomaterials. For nearly 10 years he worked in the most prestigious international research institutes and hi-tech companies, including Fraunhofer ISE (Germany), ECN (Netherlands), ANU (Australia), Kingstone Semiconductor Company Ltd. (China). He directed research work in close cooperation with the largest photovoltaic industry representatives from Europe, Asia and the USA. Winner of many awards and distinctions, including a scholarship from Burgen (Akademia Europea), a scholarship from the Foundation for Polish Science, a scholarship from the Ministry of Science and Higher Education for outstanding young scientists, a DAAD scholarship and LIDER research grant funded by the National Center for Research and Development. A member of the prestigious Young Academy of Europe, he was also honored in the ranking of prominent innovators of the new Europe "New Europe 100 Challengers". Author of 70 scientific publications and 30 international patent applications and patents. His dream was to create technology "Made in Poland", which will revolutionize many sectors of the global market, but in the management of the company he values primarily the people - professional, talented and full of passion.

Company Profile (XTPL)

XTPL logo
XTPL S.A. is a company developing on a global scale an innovative technology, protected by international patent application, enabling ultra-precise printing of nanomaterials. Pioneering printing system designed by XTPL makes it possible to precisely apply to the printing surface (most non-conductive substrate, even flexible or not flat) a special ink formulated for this purpose in the company's laboratories. Under the influence of an external electric field nanoparticles in the ink create conductive lines according to the specified parameters. As such, the thickness of the individual lines (even below 100nm), their length and the distance between them all vary depending on a specific application. XTPL's solution has all the features of so-called disruptive technology and will soon revolutionise sectors such as: printed electronics, touch screens, wearable electronics, smart packaging, biosensors, medical devices, automotive, anti-counterfeiting & open defect repair especially for solar cells, displays TFT/LCD/OLED, integrated circuits (IC), printed circuit boards (PCB), multichip modules (MCM) and photolithographic masks. The company is currently focusing on the fast paced commercialization of its unique solution & invites key players from above mentioned sectors to discuss possibilities for dedicated technology development based on JDA or JV agreements.
