Presentation Title:

Functional chemicals for lifetime ensurance in Printed and Flexible Organic Electronics

Presentation Abstract:

Gaetano Campanella (1,*), Alessandra Colombo (1), Paolo Vacca(1) (1) Functional Chemicals R&D Labs, SAES Getters S.p.A., Viale Italia 77 – 20020 Lainate (MI), Italy

Organic Electronics enables the development of electronics devices on flexible substrates making feasible new devices configurations and strongly increasing application fields. Devices performances are continuously improved through the synthesis of new materials and the definition of convenient architectures mainly based on conjugated organic semiconductors and low work function metals. Unfortunately these material show high sensitivity to moisture and oxygen and the preservation of their performance needs the adoption of protective encapsulation products able to keep the concentrations of harmful gases at extremely low values [1]. SAES Functional Chemicals Labs have developed a set of innovative dispensable products based on an optimized combination of peculiar characteristics of polymer materials and active functionalities of inorganic getter materials suitable to guarantee long lifetime to organic electronics devices on flexible substrates. Four products will be described in terms of rheological features and processability, polymerization mechanism and conditions, functional performances and feasibility for application on flexible substrates. In detail, a new version of AqvaDry®-Ink will be reported like a transparent getter materials compliant to ink-jet printing process and to the integration in multilayer barrier structures. The related Optical Clear Adhesive version, AqvaDry®-OCA, will be discussed like system able to meet transparency and reasonable moisture sorption capacity requirements for top emission flexible devices [2]. FlexGloo™-HC will be also described like an ideal compromise in terms polymer chain mobility (high flexibility), getter performances (suitable sorption capacity) and moisture diffusivity (low WVTR) [3]. Finally a hot melt adhesive, H-Dry™, will be also introduced like a new approach for the sealing of flexible devices [4]. References [1] P.

The Control and Accurate Detection of Moisture Content in Lithium Battery

Presentation Abstract:

The moisture within lithium battery has the significant influence on capacity life span safety and other capabilities. Therefore, the researchers and manufacturers hope to keep the moisture content as low as possible in the R&D process and production. The smaller the particle is, the stronger the adsorption capability is. As a result, the dehydrated efficiency of pole piece would directly affect the moisture content of the lithium battery. The dehydrated pole piece would adsorb the moisture from the surrounding atmosphere that contains moisture once the pole piece exposes to it, so it is the other channel where the moisture in lithium battery comes from. Vigor has developed the relevant technologies for lithium battery industry. This report is to introduce the technologies and equipment about the accurate detection of moisture content, dehydration of pole piece, the control of moisture in atmosphere etc.

Making Flexible and Wearable Electronics with Fibers and Textiles

Presentation Abstract:

Institute of Textiles and Clothing, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Kowloon, Hong Kong SAR, China

Flexible and wearable electronics are forseen to be the major technology in the next few decades. Conventional flexible and wearable electronic devices are fabricated on thin plastic or elastomeric thin films. These thin film devices can show remarkable device performance, however, the wearing ability is still quite limited. On the other hand, fibers and textiles are flexible and lightweight materials that have been worn by human beings hundreds of thousands of years. Compared with thin films, the three-dimensional fibre and textile structures not only provide superior flexibility, stretchability, drapability, but also breathability and washing ability. This talk will introduce how our research group makes use of the attributes of fibres for making conductive threads, electrodes, and high-performance wearable devices. We will particularly focus on the strategies and perspectives to modify fibers and textiles for making wearable capacitators and batteries with excellent mechanical durability, electrochemical stability, and high energy/power density.
