Presentation Summary

  • QTCs are a new class of electronic materials in solid, powder and ink forms
  • They are anisotropic, non-linear, intrinsically safe and can carry large currents
  • Bespoke resistance ranges covering more than 16 orders of magnitude
  • Used for sensing a range of stimuli or to make printable switches

Speaker Biography (David Lussey)

David Lussey founded Peratech in 1996 to commercialise the discovery of Quantum Tunnelling Composite (QTC), a unique pressure-sensitive substance with a resistance range of more than one trillion ohms. His background is in theoretical and applied military science.

Company Profile (Peratech Ltd)

Peratech Ltd logo
Peratech was started in 1996, to commercialise the development of a new substance called Quantum Tunnelling Composite (QTC); a unique nano-tech, electro-active composite that is extremely sensitive to external stimuli. It uses quantum physics, in a simple way, to respond to various mechanical and electrical inputs.
 
QTC can be put onto and into textiles, films and other surfaces and matrices to make them sensitive to force, human touch and other stimuli. It is now being used increasingly in telephone and computer touch-screens, white boards, robot 'skins' and many other sensing devices in the form of QTC bulk, powders, coatings and inks.
