Piezotech® Products: Fluorinated Electroactive Polymers for Printed Sensors, Actuators, and Electrocaloric.
Santa Clara Convention Center, CA, USA
16:00 - 16:20
Fluorinated electroactive Polymers based on vinylidène fluoride (VDF) and trifluoroethylene (TrFE) display remarkable pyro-, piezo- and ferroelectric properties allowing their incorporation into a wide range of devices such as printed memories, sensors, actuators, artificial muscles, OTFT, electrocaloric, energy harvesting and energy storage devices. These intelligent materials can be formulated in a wide range of solvents and processed by standard printing technologies to produce low-cost, large-area, high-performance, flexible organic electronic devices in the fields of solid-state cooling, flexible displays, IMSE, SHM and haptics for example.
Thibaut earns a Chemical Engineer and is specialized in Materials Chemistry. He got his PhD in 2016, after a 3 years collaboration between Arkema-Piezotech and ENSCM (Montpellier, France), on the synthesis and characterization of new fluorinated electroactive polymers. He then joined Piezotech project in Arkema as R&D Engineer to work on the chemical modification of the polymers. Since 2018, he is in charge of applications and developments of Piezotech® products and CTO of Piezotech Company.
Arkema is global manufacturer in specialty chemicals and advanced materials. With globally recognized brands, the Group reports annual sales of 8.8 billion euros. Buoyed by the collective energy of its 20,000 employees, Arkema operates in close to 55 countries. As designer of materials and innovative solutions, Arkema shapes materials and creates new uses that accelerate customer performance..
The Piezotech start-up, specialized in the development of advanced piezoelectric polymer sensors was created as a result of a technology transfer from the French-German Saint Louis-Institute. Since 2010 Piezotech is part of Arkema's incubator for Advanced Materials and it now focuses on the development, production, and commercialization of innovative materials for organic and printed electronics. www.arkema.com
