AME035  |  Conductive Copper Inks for Printed Electronics

This technology proposes conductive inks suitable for various printing technologies, including ink-jet which are based on copper complexes (solution without any particles). The total market for printed, flexible and organic electronics is projected to grow to $76.79 billion in 2023. A large part of that are conductive inks, which can be used for a wide range of applications such as solar cells, RFID antennas and OLED devices. The copper ink developed presents a long shelf life without any risk of oxidation, and presents no risk of clogging the inkjet printheads since it is solution-based.

AME056  |  Method of Fabricating Flexible magnetoresistive devices

This invention describes a new scheme to fabricate flexible magnetoresistive devices where the device properties are enhanced or tuned by intrinsic stress relaxation. The devices are initially fabricated on a  Si/SiO2 substrate. Using a combination of etching and transfer steps, the devices are then attached onto a second, polymeric substrate, yielding flexible devices. By intrinsic stress relaxation during the process, this method enables the engineering of the strain in the devices to modify the device properties desirably.

AME067  |  One-Step Fabrication of a Highly Conductive and Durable Copper Paste for Flexible Electronics

The electrical conductivity of copper drops when it is oxidised, and since copper is readily oxidised at relatively low temperatures, manufacturers of the display industry or any other related industry especially using inkjet printing, screen printing, off-set printing will typically use silver-based paste as a substitute. This technology offers a highly conductive and durable copper paste, that has been successfully fabricated via acid treatment and mechanical blending with corrosion inhibitor. A screen-printed copper pattern was evaluated as an electronic device with long term and thermal stability, as well as structural flexibility.

AME019  |  See-through Projection Screen and Display System

Transparent glass is used commonly in architecture façade as well as in in the windscreen and windows of vehicles. Such transparent glass provides the avenue to implement see-through display for different applications. We offered here a projection display film technology that enables images to be displayed on transparent glass without obscuring the background scene. It provides the flexibility to project images on transparent glass or plastics of various shapes and the film can be produced using roll-to-roll manufacturing, which gave it the advantage over other see-through displays, which faced difficulty to do the same.

HPC025  |  Smart Bandage for Real-Time Wireless Monitoring of Chronic Wounds

Chronic wounds present a significant challenge to modern health care providers worldwide as wounds often bleed randomly and show variations in pH levels as a result of infection. The diagnosis and treatment are challenging as medical staff often rely on physical inspections. This technology offers a low-cost wearable smart bandage that wirelessly detects early signs of wound infection such as bleeding and pH variations beside external pressure on the wound. The bandage strip can remotely send wound progression data and issue early warnings to patients, as well as remote medical staff, regarding the need to change the dressing.

HPC076  |  Roll-To-Roll Fabrication Based Triboelectric Nanogenerators And Pressure Sensor Arrays

In recent years, triboelectric nanogenerators have emerged as a potential solution for mechanical energy harvesting over conventional mechanisms such as piezoelectric and electromagnetic, due to easy fabrication, high efficiency and a wider choice of materials. The technology offered, demonstrates a large size triboelectric nanogenerator being fabricated using roll-to-roll fabrication process. The roll-to-roll process can be used to fabricate large size samples for mechanical energy harvesting from various sources e.g. human movement, vehicle movement, ocean wave energy etc. Moreover, the same fabrication process can be utilized to fabricate sensor arrays for force/pressure detection.
