Description:

Preparation of thin layers based on organic and inorganic materials and their composites for printed electronics and material printing applications by screen printing, ink-jet and other coating techniques as doctor blade, dip coating and spin coating. Light aging control.

  • Optimalization of screen printing compositions
  • Patterned printing with different shapes of printed features and different layer thickness
  • Conductive and semiconductive electrodes and layers based on dispersions of nano-oxides, conductive polymers, nano-metals, carbon nanotubes in different compositions for printed electronic, solar applications and sensorics.
