The National Research Council of Canada (NRC) was proud to see Raymor Industries receive an outstanding award during the IDTechEx Printed Electronics USA 2014 Awards. Raymor has won the best Technical Development Materials Award, thanks to a process developed by NRC that enabled the material to be commercialized. The award ceremony took place in Santa Clara (California) on November 19, 2014.
NRC has been working with Raymor for almost a decade, starting with the synthesis of single wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNT). Over the last two years in the Printable Electronics (PE) Consortium, NRC worked with Raymor to develop a new process for high purity semiconducting SWCNTs. This material can be used in thin film transistors to make printed logic, memory, and further enable large area flexible/transparent displays and sensor arrays. Touch display screens are used in various electronic devices (tablets, e-readers), and printed flexible electronics may be used to enable new form factors. Printed electronics will also enable low cost wireless ID tags, and interactive packaging, providing a path towards ubiquitous electronics and pervasive computing, adding intelligence to common objects.
Raymor's IsoSol-S100 (semiconducting - SWCNT ink) is the result of a recent technology transfer and license from technology developed within the NRC Printable Electronics Consortium. Not only is this Award a confirmation of effective government/industry collaboration, but it clearly demonstrates how NRC provides Canadian industry with needed resources for global competitiveness.
IDTechEx Printed Electronics USA 2014 is the largest Printed Electronics event in the world. The Printed Electronics Awards recognize company innovation, success and development.
