In emerging high-technology industries, research institutions often play an important role in coming up new developments. Researchers worldwide are coming up with new approaches for flexible and printed electronics.
Dr. Giovanni Nisato, senior manager, business and technology development for CSEM, noted that printing has been a part of the electronics industry for a long time, but fully printed electronics have not become mainstream yet.
“In the past five years, a number of different things happened in printed electronics and organic electronics,” Dr. Nisato said. “People came to terms with a lot of reality checks. Very high expectations were raised and not always met, but there has been a tremendous amount of work and a maturing of the industry.
“There are now several companies that learned from those experiences, and we are now at the point where a lot of devices are now technologically possible,” Dr. Nisato added. “OLED became very clearl
