Photonic Curing is the high-temperature thermal processing of a thin film using pulsed light from a flashlamp. When this transient processing is done on a low-temperature substrate such as plastic, paper or glass it is possible to attain a significantly higher temperature than the substrate can ordinarily withstand under an equilibrium heating source such as an oven.
Like many companies on the cutting edge of technology, NovaCentrix headed to the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this month to get the pulse of the macro-trends driving new opportunities and innovations.
Melinda Hartwig, Technische Universität Chemnitz, was awarded with the microFLEX-Award for her research on “Inkjet and gravure printing of conductive patterns for the application in lightweight structures”.
Headquartered in Austin, TX, NovaCentrix offers industry leading photonic curing tools, conductive inks, material and expertise enabling development and production of next generation printed electronic devices.
