AME022  |  A Novel Nested Crash Box as a Passive Safety Component for Vehicles

Raising the safety level of a car is an important scientific research subject. Crash tubes are used to reduce the harm of the accidents on passengers and equipped generally at the front of cars. They have an important role to reduce harmful effects of accidents. This technology presents a new crash box design that enhances the crashworthiness characteristics of crash tubes at dynamic and quasi-static velocities. The main targets of crash tube design are peak load should be lower and amount of energy absorption should be higher at the same time despite being adverse processes.

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.

AME065  |  Flexible Conduction Trace and Flexible Electronic Device for Wearables

This technology presents a low-cost flexible conductive composite and a simple process of arranging the nickel particles in the desired direction by using an external magnetic field. This technology relates to a flexible conduction trace which has better electrical characteristic comparing the previous the metal thin film tech. Furthermore, the flexible conduction trace in this invention is able to maintain a constant resistance during no tensile strain is applied or the tensile strain is applied. Thus this invention provides the operational reliability and prevents the degradation that is experienced in other flexible and conductive materials.

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.
