Imagine circuit boards printed on paper. Or polymer-infused paper that could make aircraft interiors more fire-resistant. We’re members of research “clusters” that are working on nanotechnology that could have unprecedented results in photonics, magnetic storage, optoelectronics, displays, nanomedicine and even self-healing materials.
Advanced R2R (roll-to-roll) products would not only give us new and better ways to create solar cells and antennas, but could result in a number of other exciting attributes like barrier layers, security films, transparent conductor layers, water-repellent surfaces, and filtration membranes. And we’re not only helping to develop great ideas, but partnering with other companies and research institutions like UMass to turn these great ideas into practical, low-cost, highvolume fabrication solutions.
