Short Courses

Short Courses sind Intensivkurse für Kongressteilnehmer, in denen die vielschichtige Themenwelt der gedruckten Elektronik in kompakter Form vorgestellt wird. In 45 Minuten führen Vorträge in die diversen Spezialthemen ein. Danach gibt es die Möglichkeit zur Diskussion.

Short Courses der LOPEC 2023


Dr. Erika Rebrosova
Sun Chemical Corp. (USA)

"Inks for Printed Electronics Applications"

Lecture Description:
Functional inks continue to rejuvenate themselves to stay relevant and enable new applications or new ways of electronics manufacturing or assembly and integration. This talk will review the newest ink technologies advancing the HMI applications.

Andrea Glawe

"Machine and process technology for large area OPE"

Lecture Description:
Very high demands are placed on coating and printing equipment for OPE. High product quality must be guaranteed. In addition, sustainable machine solutions are required. Solutions for both are to be shown in the discussion.

Prof. Eugenio Cantatore
Eindhoven University of Technology (NL)

"Design and Simulation of Circuits and Systems Based on Organic Materials"

Lecture Description:
After attending this course, the participant will be able to describe the design flow of a complex system based on organic materials, will be able to list the main simulations needed for the design, and will provide details on the design flow of OTFT-based circuits, providing examples based on a complex sensing system including organic proximity sensors, integrated electronics based on OTFTs and Silicon ICs.

Solenn Berson

"Halogenated perovskite for printed photovoltaics: materials, processes and applications"

Lecture Description:
Perovskite solar cells have recently emerged as one of today's most promising upcoming photovoltaic technology. Thanks to a unique combination of attractive features (high efficiency, low-cost, tunable bandgap, etc.) and their potential ease of processing, they have drawn a tremendous research interest over the last few years with >25% PV efficiencies, compatible with a large variety of applications

Prof. Ravinder Dahiya
Professor at Northeastern University (US)

"Printed nanostructures-based sensors"

Lecture Description:
The short course will present different routes for semiconducting nanowire growth, methods for printed electronics layers, fabrication of various sensors (photodetectors, touch, temperature etc.) based on printed semiconducting nanostructures, and their applications.

Dr. Peter Zalar
Holst Centre / TNO (NL)

“Making Sensors Stretchable – Approaches, Challenges, and Outlook”

Lecture Description:
In this short course, I will present methods to create stretchable sensors and stretchable sensors systems using (hybrid)-printing technologies. This builds upon concepts governing the basic mechanical properties of materials, which then further take advantage of state-of-the-art materials and fabrication methods. Finally, the challenges and future outlook of stretchable sensors will be discussed.

Dr. Chloé Bois
ICI - Printability and Graphic Communications Institute (CA)

“Printed and organic electronics: short course on sustainability”

Lecture Description:
“Is printed electronics more sustainable than electronics?”, “Should we use biosourced materials to make compostable products?”, “Should we replace silver and plastics?”
This short course will focus on life-cycle assessment at the product development level, then on the recuperation ecosystem, discuss circular economy and finally at a government level, the current industrial and finance regulations.

"AR-powered manufacturing needs a sense of touch"

Lecture Description:
"With 25% of manufacturing processes performed through manual work, limiting AR to the eyesight excludes a crucial faculty: the sense of touch.
This presentation will establish the role of haptics in complementing data visualization and processing, and demonstrate how a sensor-powered tactile wearable closes the gap between the human sense of touch and next-generation manufacturing AR user interfaces."
