Hu: Invited Talk at Printed Electronics U.S.A.

Although it looks like plastic, this is an aproximately 90 percent transparent piece of paper. The Hu Group's transparent papers can contain conductive materials, like nanowires, or be printed on with conductive ink, making them a new option for use in printed electronics.

Assistant Professor Liangbing Hu (Department of Materials Science & Engineering and University of Maryland Energy Research Center) was an invited speaker at the Printed Electronics U.S.A. 2013 conference, “The Application of Printed, Organic & Flexible Electronics,” held in November in Santa Clara, Ca.

In his Paper Electronics track keynote, “Transparent Paper for Printed Electronics,” Hu discussed the development of his group’s three generations of novel cellulose-based transparent paper, and proof-of-concept device applications. Hu also discussed the potential applications of the material in organic LEDs, organic photovoltaics, thin film transistors, resistive touch screens, and other flexible electronic devices.
