Brewer Science Showcases Advancements in the Use of Carbon Nanotubes in Electronic Systems at TechConnect World Innovation Conference & Expo

Jun 13, 2014

Rolla, MO, June 12, 2014 - Brewer Science, Inc., is progressing toward the commercial use of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in electronic systems for three emerging technology areas: material for NRAM® CNT-based memory devices, additive deposition of CNT inks for printed electronic applications, and discrete and integrated device technologies focused on environmental sensing. Brewer Science will report on these and other technologies during five presentations at TechConnect World Innovation Conference & Expo, in Washington, DC, June 15-18.

James Lamb, Carbon Electronics Business Development Director at Brewer Science, explains, “Our focus is to bring commercial acceptance, minimize hazards, reduce costs associated with waste and handling, and understand long-term impacts through life cycle analysis. By improving the consistency and quality of nanomaterials with a focus on deposition, and building these materials into working devices, we are progressing toward our goal to commercialize CNTs for electronic systems.”

Brewer Science is introducing a prototype HT1022 printed sensor, a combined temperature and humidity sensor with extremely fast response times. Dr. Ryan Giedd, Device Development Director at Brewer Science, elaborated, “Our unique temperature and humidity sensor is the first of such CNT-based printed devices available for developmental sampling and testing and it will be available for sale soon.”

Brewer Science® CNTRENE® 1020 B6-R material is a third-generation product for embedded memory manufacturing. The primary focus is improved quality in a material with a higher CNT concentration, which leads to both reduced processing cost and reduced waste generation. Presentations at TechConnect World will cover these improvements and will look at life cycle analysis and the impact of CNT materials and NRAM® devices.

Brewer Science is also introducing CNTRENE® 3024 A3-R conductive material for ink-jet printing with increased conductivity per print pass. The company will showcase its recently introduced conductive and semiconducting CNT inks for Aerosol Jet® and spray deposition at TechConnect World Expo. Advancements in conductive inks and the development of inks and processes for stretchable systems will also be presented.

Dr. Jyoti Malhotra, Senior Scientist at Brewer Science, will present the invited talk “Chemical Manufacturing Challenges of Advancing Micro- and Nanoelectronic Technologies into Mass Production” at TechConnect World. Dr. Malhotra said, “To ensure our nation’s leadership in nanoelectronic technologies, it is pivotal to carry out knowledge-intensive manufacturing of these technologies in the United States. Two key things must happen to accomplish this. Technology companies must retain their highly skilled science and technology researchers, and our education system must enable and encourage the steady growth of a pipeline of talent.”
