Illuminate The Touch: Inks For Advanced Printed Electronics
Santa Clara Convention Center, CA, USA
Grand Ballroom G
15:00 - 15:20
The promise of printed electronics is the production of electronic components on various substrates with low process temperature and adaptable layouts thus creating thinner and lighter components at lower costs. However, in order to keep this promise, every customer need requires a dedicated or tailor-made solution. Polymers are the basis for these solutions since the polymeric film can be flexible, stretchable or even thermoformable and can be adapted to special substrates such as different plastics or paper.
ELANTAS has been serving the electrical and electronics industry with special polymer chemistry for electrical insulation for more than 100 years. The Product Line Printed Electronics uses this expertise to create functional electronic inks for special costumer needs.
This talk outlines the recent developments of ELANTAS on transparent conductive inks as well as conductive and insulating inks such as UV-curable silver inks, which allow both high printing speed and high accuracy of repeated prints, thermoformable silver inks, and inks with high thermal shock and heat stability.
Speaker Biography (Fabian Gyger)
Dr. Gyger joined ELANTAS in 2014 as a research scientist working on functional and conductive inks for printed electronics. He is currently Head of R&D for this division, a role he has held since 2017. Dr. Gyger studied chemistry at the University of Karlsruhe and at the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand. After graduating, he earned his Ph.D. in chemistry from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology working on the synthesis of inorganic nanomaterials. He later completed a postdoc with BASF focusing on the solution-based deposition of inorganic materials for electronic components.
