Professor Zheng Cui graduated from the Southeast University, China, in 1981 and had his Master degree and Doctoral degree in electronic engineering in 1984 and 1988; In the field of micro and nanofabrication technologies he published over 19250 technical papers and 6 books. In 2009 after working in the UK for 20 years, he returned to China and founded the Printable Electronics Research Center (PERC) at the Suzhou Institute of Nanotech and Nanobionics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, which was then the first research center in China dedicated to printed electronics R&D. His research team at the PERC has conducted more than 50 research projects with research funding over 100 million RMB. In the past 10 years working in China, he has authored and or coauthored over 690 technicaljournal papers and two books on the subject of printed electronics. In addition to academic research in printed electronics, Professor Zheng Cui also devoted to transferring technologies to industry. He has filed more than 70 patents in printed electronics. He and his team at PERC developed a novel hybrid printing technique to manufacture metal-mesh transparent conductive films. The invention won the Chinese outstanding patent award in 2014. The technology was subsequently transferred to a leading manufacturer of touch panels in China and implemented in mass production. Display panels integrating the metal-mesh transparent conductors as touch sensor have been commercialized and created over billions of market value. He is also a the founder of two high-tech companies utilizing printed electronics technology in gas sensors and flexible electronic circuits and both have commercial products on market.
