SJPC expertise gained in the field of microelectronics and its innovative abilities have allowed to penetrate the emerging printed electronic market and to bring its capabilities and know how to this industry.
Printed electronics are built around the development of new applications and new generations of products that are not expensive, flexible, light and thin layered. These are features that make this new technology more respectful of the environment. Printed electronics cover diverse applications such as flexible display systems, captors, identification labelling by radio frequency (RFID), organic photovoltaic cells and batteries. It enables one to make more interactive or "intelligent" products by integrating the electronic components which are printed on the surface.
The materials used are active inks which are printed onto pliable supports (polyester film, paper, etc.). All forms of classic printing techniques are imaginable, but jet ink printing is the most promising. The inks may contain metallic nano-particles (silver), inorganic components (ITO), but also organic components such as semiconductor polymers (polythiophene, polycarbazole...) or conductors (poly aniline...). The products are therefore made of several different layers of materials allowing one to obtain the required functions.
The expertise of SJPC lies in the organic conductive and semi conductive polymer. It is working in collaboration with a number of key players on applications as diverse as organic photovoltaics (OPV) or OLEDs to scale up materials that will be at the forefront of the technology of this industry.
