Advancements in Polymer Materials Drive Opportunities in the Semiconductor and Sensor Sectors
Polymer Electronics is a novel technology platform that paves the way for revolutionary small, flexible, wide-area electronic devices that can be produced at low cost in very high volumes.
Polymer Electronics technology is based on organic materials that are conductive, and semiconductive. There are many different types of such materials, including organic molecules and polymers, nanomaterials (organic and inorganic), carbon nanotubes, and many others. They can be manufactured by means of printing methodologies in large volumes on flexible substrates.
The technology has immense potential in many application fields, including RFID, screens, lighting, solar cells, cameras, memories, and smart objects.
