The Laboratory of Printed Electronics and Structure Assembly conducts extensive research in the field of fabrication of printed structures and circuits with the use of advanced printing techniques. The laboratory also develops innovative solutions for the use of printed electronics in biosensors, wearable electronics, textronics or photovoltaics. The laboratory equipment enable the production of carbon nanomaterials, such as CNT in the form of a carpet.
One of the key research areas carried out in the laboratory is the development of functional and advanced materials dedicated to specific applications in printed electronics. The numerous equipment including devices for the production and homogenization of pastes and inks enables the creation of unique materials for specific applications. In the further process, the laboratory equipment allows the characterization and testing of rheological, electrical and mechanical properties of printing materials.
An important element of the production of printed electronics is the process of hardening, drying and sintering prints, which can be carried out in our laboratory. Chamber furnaces and dryers enable temperature processes up to 1,200 degrees, and additional UV and IR lines allow the use of substrates sensitive to high temperature in our applications.
The electronic structures created by the research team are used as tensors, collecting electrodes in photovoltaics, electronic microcircuits or sensors used in bioengineering, chemistry and biology.
The great advantage of the studio is an interdisciplinary team of scientists gathering people with knowledge and experience in various fields of science, such as: chemistry, electronics, electrical engineering, automation, mechanics, bioengineering and materials science.
