London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) September 03, 2009 -- The Photonics and Plastic Electronics Knowledge Transfer Network have invited IPI Europe to facilitate a tutorial on 19th September in London.
The event, which will held at The Institute of Materials, Minerals & Mining in London, UK from 10 am on the 17th September 2009, will involve speakers including;
David Corr of NTERA on âApplications using Nanochromicsâ¢ Displaysâ;
Richard Kirk of PolyPhotonix on âImplementing Printed Electronics for Displays and Lightingâ;
Birte Surborg of RAKO Security Label on âHybrid Solutions for Brand Protectionâ;
Mark Litecky of Soligie on Printed Electronics to achieve Commercial Products;
Lawrence Hogg of Faraday Knowledge on âCurrent Applications for Printed Electronics in Packagingâ and Cathy Curling of Curling Consulting.
The speakers will cover the practical aspects of the underlying technologies, with examples of real Printed or Plastic Electronic solutions that enable applications, devices or components in the following areas: o Flexible Displays & Signage Small and large area devices that create new visual effects: e.g. a static or moving colour display, a scrollable image e.g. for advertising, promotional goods, toys & games, tickets, cards
o Printed Sensors & Controlled Release Devices that sense something about a productâs environment, e.g. its location, temperature or condition. Patches that release chemical substances in a controlled way for Medical & Industrial Applications
o Smart & Interactive Products & Packaging Products & packaging of all types that can be used to âinteractâ & âcommunicateâ with consumers e.g. using printed RFID devices and wireless data exchange; or by making a sound
o Brand Protection & Anti-Counterfeiting Devices that can be used to store some embedded code, data or unique surface feature to enable it to be identified and validated as a genuine article
o Energy Capture, Storage & Generation Printed devices (e.g. solar, kinetic or piezoelectric) that can capture, store or generate energy that can be used to power printed and conventional products
In addition to hard & electronic copies of the presentations made, delegates will receive a complimentary copy of an IPI Europe programme members circulation document âThe Printed Electronics Adoption Journalâ which summarises the latest advances in printed electronics technology and adoption.
