Assess the future of graphene at Graphene Live
(Nanowerk News) Graphene Live is hosted by IDTechEx on Dec 5-6 2012. This event is being held in the heart of Silicon Valley at Santa Clara, California - close to many developers and users of Graphene. The show will be co-located alongside Printed Electronics USA 2012, the world's largest event on printed and potentially printed electronics. It is attended by more than 1500 people and 120 exhibiting companies. Many of these organizations will be interested in using graphene to improve their devices.
Graphene is one of the most exciting new materials currently being developed. It brings superlative performance to supercapacitors, batteries, touch screens, logic, sensors, displays, composites and much more thanks to its electrical, thermal and mechanical properties. There are multiple manufacturing techniques that are being used to make graphene - each with its own strengths and weaknesses including different scaling, different cost structure and different graphene quality.
Our audience will develop a comprehensive yet detailed understanding of the state of technology and market per graphene application area. This conference will cover all the promising applications of graphene, including graphene composites, supercapacitors and batteries, functional inks, logic and memory, touch screens, sensors and bio-electronics and beyond.
Uniquely, you will hear the full story per market segment. Potential end-users and investors will initially outline the opportunities, requirements, scaling concerns, price points, etc. Academics/experts will then discuss the latest progress and challenges facing graphene per application area.
The Graphene Live Tradeshow runs alongside the conference tracks. It is the largest tradeshow on the topic, and is part of the Printed Electronics USA 2012 tradeshow featuring more than 120 exhibiting companies. The tradeshow will cover equipment providers, material providers, manufacturers and integrators.
