The Advanced Textiles Research Group (ATRG) formed by Professor Tilak Dias, is one of the fastest growing units at Nottingham Trent University. The research of the group runs along two main topics: Electronic Textiles and Yarns, focusing on Embedding Electronic Functionality into Yarns and Textiles, and Flexural Materials, focusing on Advanced Knitted and Woven Structures, Elastomeric Composites and Bio-realistic Modelling. Located within the School of Art and Design, the Research Group forms strong cross-disciplinary links with colleagues in the artistic and fashion areas. The research of the group has moved and grown within the School of Art and Design since 2010. Professor Dias, who leads the group has over 30 years of research experience in this area, and has extensive industrial and academic contacts both within the UK and internationally.

Early printed electronics revisited

There was an element of back to the future at the hugely successful recent Printed Electronics Europe event in Dresden. Although a high proportion of printed electronics has progressed from screen printing to other printing technologies, notably inkjet, for better control, less waste of these expensive inks and other benefits, at least one company has reverted to advanced rotary screen printing to gain throughput. Indeed, Professor Edgar Dörsam reported that his team has achieved feature size of better than one micron with its advanced screen printing methods. Daetwyler even announced a capability of gravure printing below five microns in feature size with its machines.
