New focus on flexible substrates to benefit printed electronics and organic photovoltaics

DuPont Microcircuit Materials and the Holst Centre, will collaborate to advance technology specifically in the area of printed structures on flexible substrates, which has application in flexible display, RFID, lighting, biomedical and Organic Photovoltaic (OPV) markets.
 
DuPont MCM, an established high-volume supplier of electronic inks and pastes has developed a broad range of printed electronic materials commercially available today. These functional inks are used for forming conductive traces, capacitor and resistor elements, and dielectric and encapsulating layers that are compatible with many substrate surfaces including polyester, glass and ceramic.
 
DuPont MCM will be joining the 'Printed Structures on Flexible Substrates' program. The work will concentrate on optimizing printed metallic structures on flexible substrates in terms of conductivity, fine line deposition and low energy sintering. A variety of roll-to roll compatible printing techniques will be studied including screen, flexography and ink jet. Alternative conductor metallurgies will be studied as well as reactive systems for depositing conductive traces.
 
DuPont Microcircuit Materials will highlight its printed electronics offerings at the IDTechEx Printed Electronics Europe 2011 External Link event on April 5 - 6, 2011, in Dusseldorf, Germany.
