SouthWest NanoTechnologies to Present Research Paper on Conductive Carbon Nanotube Inks
(Nanowerk News) SouthWest NanoTechnologies, Inc. (SWeNT), a leader in high quality, single-wall and specialty multi-wall carbon nanotubes (CNT), will be presenting performance data on its new conductive carbon nanotube inks at the Printed Electronics and Photovoltaics USA 2010 conference. SWeNT will also have information available in the exhibition area (Booth 80).
The Conference and Trade Show runs from November 30th – December 2nd, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
SWeNT's Director of Quality, Dr. Philip Wallis will present the paper on High Volume Low Cost CNT Printing On Commercial Equipment on Thursday December 2nd at 2:50 pm as part of Track 1. Wallis is a well-known expert in ink technologies, whose experience spans three decades.
SWeNT will feature printed samples using its innovative new ink products as well as describing new applications for its Specialty Multi-Wall (SMW) CNTs.
SWeNT's CNT Inks, based on V2V™ Ink technology developed by alliance partner Chasm Technologies, Inc. can be printed using commercial, high-volume printing methods and equipment, including flexographic, gravure and screen printing.
This breakthrough ink technology, combined with SWeNT's unique ability to tailor the synthesis of CNT materials for applications (using its patented CoMoCAT® process) will enable customers to print large area, low-cost devices for a wide range of applications including energy-efficient lighting, affordable photovoltaics, improved energy storage and printed electronics.
Printed Electronics and Photovoltaics USA are co-located conferences and a common tradeshow. The seventh annual Print Electronics USA is the world's largest event on the topic. It covers all the applications, technologies and opportunities for printed electronics in industries such as consumer goods, healthcare, military and electronics. Photovoltaics USA cover all the developments in thin film, organic and printed photovoltaics. Other highlights of the conference include the latest innovations on established photovoltaics technologies as well as emerging ones.
